|)HE *'Guide through Europe", undergoing annually a thorough 
and careful revision and thus being an original, practical 
and reliable manual, has risen considerably from year to 
year in public favour. Indeed, whereas the early editions 
consisted of 20,000 copies, no fewer than 30,000^ are now 
issued every spring. 

>■ Of course, in condensing such a mass of details, it is impossible 

to prevent mistakes from creeping in here and there; and the publisher 
would be very glad to receive notification of such errors, so that the 
necessary corrections may be made in succeeding editions. 

To avoid misunderstanding, it may be stated here that the 
work has not been written in the interests of advertisers, but for the 
benefit of passengers crossing to Europe by the boats of the Hamburg- 
American Line. 

First-class hotels, * boarding-houses, businesses, banks, sanatoria &c. 
are indicated throughout; but the book being a guide and not a directory, 
only a selection could be made. 

Finally, it may be remarked that German guides through Europe 

existing in great number, the present work was originally written to 

*fill a desideratum long - felt among English - speaking travellers; and 

numerous voluntary letters of thanks and suggestions, couched in the 

warmest terms, are ample evidence that this hope has not been in vain.

ltist0[|y of the 

Hamburg-Ameijican Line. 

The Hamburg- American Line 
was established some sixty 

years since, having been 
called into existence by the active 
emigration movement which appear- 
ed among the peoples of Europe in 
the thirties and forties of the last 
century. At that period, the United 
States were regarded as the Eldorado 
in which one had but to stretch out 
the hand to obtain in plenitude that 
which years of toil had failed to gain 
in Europe. Whereas, in the year 1825, 
the number of emigrants was only 
1(XX), the figures had risen, by 1832, 
to 60,000 annually. Bremen had al- 
ready taken up, with energy, the 
North American traffic; while the 
trade of Hamburg lay principally 
with the West Indies and South 
America. During the year 1837, 
14,000 emigrants lett Bremen, or 
rather Bremerhaven, for the United 
States, the number of passages made 
being 172; whereas, averaging th"j 
years from 1841 to 1850, only 42 passages annually were made from 
Hamburg. It was dear, however, that the trade with North America was 
far more capable ul development, and had before it a much greater 
future, than that of the West Indies or of South America. 

The Hamburg shipowners of that day despatched occasional emigrant 
isels to North America, but the traffic was wanting both in regularity 
d in organisation ; and it became evident that, in order to assure Ham- 
rg and its fleet their share in the coming trade, it would be necessary 
create a regular service of boats to the United States. 

The calling into existence of this great line casts a striking light 
on the state of affairs at that period; and a short account of the early 
irs of the undertaking will doubtless awaken general interest. 
At the outset, it was decided to start a regular despatch of sailing- vessels. 


The Lookout. 

People looked, in those days, somewhat askance at the new-faivgled <»teAnh 
boat. True^ the "Sirius" and the "Great Western" had crossed the Atlantk 
from England; and a Steamship Company had been formed in that country iji 
1840; but experience as to the steamer was still too limited for the shippers 
to resort to steam as a substitute for the cheaper motive power of wind. 

So then, in the spring of 1847, a number of the most respected Hamburg 
merchants gathered together to discuss ways and means for the foundation 
i>f the purposed undertaking; and, though their plans were extremely modest, 
they found the greatest difficulty in obtaining the necessary funds. 

How difficult it was may be gathered from the chary manner in which 
the First shares were taken-up. These consisted of 60, and \^'cre divided 
;imotig no fewer than 41 shareholders, the greatest number of shares sub 
scribed for by any one individual being only four. In many cases the sub 
scriber, on reconsidering the bold step he had taken, withdrew his consent. 
itnd either removed his name from the subscribers' list or transferred his 
i^hares to someone else. It may be noted, here, that the share capital 
tif the company has now risen to 125 million marks. 

At last, however, on the 27tli May 1847, at a general meeting ol 
the shareholders, the company was constituted under the stj'le of the 
*Haraburg'Amerikanische Packetfahrt Actien-Gesellschaft" for the purpose 
ikf establishing regular communication with North America by means of 
Fiaiiing- vessels carrying the Hamburg flag. So far as capital permitted, 
the required ships were to be built or bought and, if necessary^ cba'fercd 
to undertake the voyages from and to New York. 

The company being thus established, a considerable period elapsed be 
fore the working of the line could be commenced. For, despite the not over 
plenteous funds, the managers were desirous of obtaining sound and fast 
sailing vessels. Negotiations were opened with all the most coi[ipetent docki? 
of the German coast and (ship-building being at that time cheaper on thi" 
BaJtic than on the Elbe or Weser) also with Finland, Sweden and Denmark. 
But, after long consideration of the pros and cons, it was decided, nolwlth 
standing' the difference in price, to place orders for three ships in Hiimi-sur^; 
uhile a fourth was to be bought second-hand either in England or America. 

The construction of the three new boats was begun in Deccdiber 1847: 
the names chosen for them were "Deutschland", "Rhein" and ".America", 
the last afterwards receiving the name of *North America". The contract 
price for the three vessels with complete fittings was 367,500 marks; and 
the sum rci^erved for the purchase of the fourth ship was 67,5(H) marks. 

How diminutive do these figures appear when compared with thi- 
cost of the great vessels of the present day, which often aniounta tn 
millions for a single steamer. The *Deutschland" for instance^ the fastesi 
steamer of the Company, cost 12,500,000 marks. 

In the meanwhile, 62 shares had been subscribed-for, thus raising the 
working capital to 465,000 marks. After payment had been made for t^ ' 
ships, there remained, however, only 30,000 marks, an exceedingly sms 
sum for a new enterprise that had to manipulate so vast an apparatus 

Two of the sailing-vessels left the stocks in October 1848. The thin 
the ^Rhein", was not ready for launching till the following month, an 
then had the misfortune to capsize, though it was soon re-floated. Thj 
incident was, for the seamen, a very unfavourable omen. And yet it wa 
this very vessel which, by its brilliant and rapid passages, did so muc 
towards establishing the repute of the Packetfahrt Ships as fast sailers

It may be noted, here, that the shipbuilders, never having, as they 
said, constructed such large vessels, made a serious error in their calcu* 
lations, and lost considerably on the transactions. Fifty years ago, the 
building of a ship of such dimensions as the *Deutschland" (700 tons) 
was an event of great magnitude. Nowadays, German docks build sailing- 
ships of 5000 tons (the full-rigged ship "Preussen" of the Hamburg firm 
of Laeisz has a gross tonnage of 5080); while the great freight steamers 
are three and even five times as large: the *Graf Waldersee", "Patricia", and 
"Pretoria", for instance, built for the Company in Germany, have each a 
registered tonnage of about 13,000; while the passenger and cargo steamer 
"Kaiserin Auguste Victoria" — a gigantic vessel built at the Vulcan Docks 
in Stettin for the North Atlantic service — has a tonnage of 25,000 tons. 

The full-rigged ship, *Deutschland", was the largest of the three 
vessels and was capable of accommodating 200 steerage and 20 cabin 
passengers, a considerable figure in those times. At the present day the 
crew alone of such fast steamers as the *Deutschland" numbers more 
than 550 men; while 300 steerage and 800 cabin passengers are carried. 

Concerning the arrangements and manipulation of the sailing-ships, 
the then managing-director of the company, Herr Adolf Godeffroy, gave 
the shareholders the follow:ing detailed description: — 

"The ships have turned out very handsome. The arrangements for cabin and 
steerage passengers, avoiding all superfluous luxury, are as pretty and comfortable as 
one could desire. Each ship has a small library on board: the crockery bears the name 
of the ship: linen is provided in plenty for the use of passengers. .The fact that each 
passenger has a bed to himself is particularly worthy of mention. The judiciousness 
of these comfortable arrangements has been well rewarded: passengers who had the 
intention to travd by the boats of other companies, having inspected those of the 
"Packetfahrt", have decided to book by this line. Special consideration has been paid 
to the choice of captains; and, by great good fortune, men have been hit upon who 
are not merely first-rate navigators, but who also understand, by their friendly, attentive, 
and sociable character, to render the life of passengers on board the boats as agreeable 
as possible. Captain and officers have received a special uniform, and have been supplied 
with comprehensive instructions, worked out with reference to their position on board. 
As there is no similar Packet-boat service in existence, it has been the endeavour of 
the managers to produce something of great excellence; and all the ships have, from 
the outset, been built of a substantial type and fitted with the necessary luxury. In 
this respect. the managers have taken the Austrian Lloyd Packet-boat Company as their 
pattern. Moreover, books have been introduced (one for the cabins and one for the 
steerage), which, on completion of each voyage, the captain has to lay before the 
passengers for them to enter possible complamts.** 

The company was now in possession of three vessels. Unfortunately, 
however, it had not been found feasible to complete the purchase of the 
fourth vessel: neither in Great Britain nor in the United States could a 
suitable boat be obtained. Consequently, the managers had accepted the offer 
of a ship then on the stocks of a Bremerhaven shipwright. In possession of this 
vessel, named the "Elbe", the company was now ready to commence a regular 
packet-boat service; and, on the 15*1^ of October 1848, the '^Deutschland", 
under her commander, Captain Hancker, started on the first voyage. 

Like every new enterprise, the Packetfahrt met with many dis 
appointments and reverses. These were caused mainly by fluctuatini 
political and commercial circumstances. They may be passed over wit! 
the remark that the year 1852 was the first which permitted payment o 
a dividend. But, despite the modest results, the company endeavoured 
confidently and energetically, to extend both its fleet and its commerci? 
operations. Thus, in 1851, another large sailer, the *Oder", had bee 
introduced, having accommodation for 250 steerage and 40 cabin pa? 
sengers; and this was followed in 1853, by the *Donau". 


of the Hamburg AmericanZLine's Steamer "Amerika". 


of the Hamburg' American Uttr^s Steamer "Amerika" 


The 6 vessels, with a combined burden of 4,000 tons, were considered, 
at that day, a very respectable fleet. Each of the boats made, on the 
average, three voyages annually, thus carrying about 12,000 tons cargo 
to New York and bringing back a like quantity. The pi-esent twin-screw 
steamer ^^Pennsylvania", can take on board more cargo than the whole 
sailing-fleet could carry in one year I It is capable of making ten, voyages 
to America and back in a twelvemonth, carrying 120,000 tons on each 
outward and each homeward journey. The sailing - fleet of the 
company in the year 1853 would have required nine years for the trans- 
port. The vessels took, on the average, about 40 days to reach New York: the 
return voyage was made in 29 days, — the outward and homeward voyage, 
with stoppage in New York, in about 90 days. The number of passengers 
carried, in 1848, was 168; in 1849, 1474 persons; in 1850, 1420 persons; 
in 1851, 3448 persons; in 1852, 4666 persons; in 1853, 4950 persons. 

We have now arrived ^t an event of great moment to the Company, 
namely, the introduction of the Steamship! 

Both at home and abroad, steamship companies had been formed; 
and, consequently, in 1854, the Packetfahrt, resolved to try the experiment 
of running two screw-steamers, each having a burden of 1800 — 2000 tons 
and engines of 300 H-P. The total cost was to be 1,500,000 marks, the 
crew to consist of 60 men, the consumption of coal to be 2 tons per hour. 
The working capital having been correspondingly increased, the two 
vessels were .ordered in England. Their length was to be 300' deck, 
280' keel, — their greatest breadth 38 Vg' and depth 26', the gross burden 
2026 reg. tons, and estimated speed 12 — 12 V2 knots. In consideration of the 
then state of the Elbe, the draft of the steamers was not to exceed 17 feet. 

The vessels — named, respectively, 'Hammonia* and *Borussia' — werie 
delivered, the one in July and the other in September, 1855. At the 
outset, it was found difficult to obtain engineers: the entire commercial 
navy of Germany, which reflected in its various flags the motley character 
of the many German states, possessed but few steamships; and there was 
no source whatever whence engineers could be drawn. 

On the other hand, the introduction of English assistants, which 
was the customary resort of other companies, appeared to the managers 
to be quite out of place. They deemed it important that their vessels 
should be manned by exclusively German crews, and ultimately succeeded 
in obtaining the services of one of the few experts in marine engineering 
then to be had in Germany. This gentleman undertook the organisation 
of the whole department, and supervised tiie building of the new steamers. 
Furthermore, a crew was trained for the new steamer service, special 
instructions being drafted, and the, captains making voyages on foreign 
steamships to prepare themselves for the command of their future vessels. 

It may be of interest to note here that the steamers, on completion, 
were not at once placed in the peaceable service for which they we 
intended, but were chartered by the English and French governments f' 
the transport of troops to the Crimea. However, in March 1856, th 
were employed for the regular monthly steamer service to New York. T 
first voyage was made by the 'Borussia* on the l^t of June 1856; and th( 
followed such a rapid rise in passenger and cargo traffic between Hambu 
and New York that it became necessary to start a fortnightly service. 

The period which now commences includes a continual progress 
the development of the fleet and the introduction of new lines of bos 


It is also a period of keen competition, in which the Company ultimately 
comes out victorious. 

In the year 1868, the last sailing vessels of the Company are disposed 
of; and it becomes henceforth a steamship concern only. 

' In 1867 the New Orleans— Havanna Line, which did not prove very 
remunerative, was started. The year 1870 saw the creation of the monthly 
service between Hamburg and the West Indies, with Havre as port of call; 
though, in consequence of the war, the boats did not begin running till 
March 26*^ 1871. The central point for the West Indian trafBc was 
originally laid in Trinidad, but was afterwards transferred to St. Thomas. 
But, even then, eight years were spent in making sacrifices for German 
trade, ere ^ny profit was obtained on the West India Line. Upwards of 
4 million marks were absorbed in this way, before the Company began to 
obtain the masteiy of the situation. In connection with the West India Mail 
Service, a local one from St. Thomas to Hayti and Mexico was introduced. 

About the opening of the 'eighties', began that separation of the 
cargo traffic from the mail and passenger service which led to the forma- 
tion of the so-called Express Service and the development of the modern 
fast steamer. At first, the managers in Hamburg could not make up their 
minds to follow the example of the other steamship companies. The 
unavoidably deep draft of the required vessels excluded their being 
despatched from Hamburg; and the company feared to face the cost of 
despatching from the Lower Elbe, as this was known, from former 
experience to be very expensive. Moreover, the want of suitable docks 
doubtless affected the decision; the dry-dock of the Company was not 
capable of admitting vessels of the proposed dimensions; and private docks 
of that day were likewise too small. Furthermore, the lucrativeness of the fast 
steamer had not yet been sufficiently tested for one to place much faith therein. 
It was, therefore, resolved to strike a middle course and to adopt a type of 
vessel which, while it showed many improvements, was yet suitable to local 
conditions in point of draft, and retained the principle of combined cargo 
and passenger traffic. Such a steamer, afterwards the *Hammonia' (III), 
was ordered in January 1881. At the same time, the then existing steamers 
were remodelled at considerable cost, most of them receiving an increase 
in deck constructions, so as to meet the modern requirements of passenger 
traffic and turn the hold to good account for cargo purposes. 

The animated emigration and the rise in the cargo trade which began in the 
year 1881, necessitated the despatch of boats to New York twice a-week. 

In New York, the Bremen and the Hamburg steamers had hitherto made use 
of the same landing-place, even after its purchase by the North German Lloyd. 
But, on the introduction of. the weekly double service, the space at disposal 
proved inadequate. The Packetfahrt consequently acquired, in 1881, an advan- 
tageously situated landing-place. Here, at a cost of about 3 million marks, 
warehouses, wharfs, bridges and dwellings for the higher officials were 
erected, which still have but few rivals in the whole harbour of New York 

The concern, which had already attained vast proportions, receive 
such an impulse from the increased trade with New York and the openir 
of new lines to the West Indies that the Company's steamers, in the yes 
1884, covered upwards of one million knots. Two years later, anotht 
new line was started, namely, that between Stettin and New York. 

In 1887, a thorough reorganisation of the fleet was commenced. What 
ever was no longer in accord with modern demands was removed an 


of the Hamburg- American Line. 

replaced by improved material: the old 'Spardeck' ships were disposed-of, 
and the West India Fleet augmented by the formation of a fifth line. 

It was now deemed an appropriate time for entering on the question 
of the fast steamer; especially as the twin-screw steamers of the English 
lines had manifested various advantages over other vessels: they not only 
possessed higher velocity, but also great security, since, if one machine 
became damaged, the vessel could still proceed though at reduced speed. 

The Company, accordingly, decided to adopt this system. A German and 
An English firm each received orders for the building of a twin-screw steamer. 
Cfcrman shipbuilders were thus given the opportunity of showing what they 
could do i n the production of vessels of the largest proportions : hitherto no 
attempt had been made in Germany 'to build steamers of such dimensions. 

Furthermore, increased comfort for emigrants was also a matter of 
consideration; and the steerage was accordingly divided into chambers, 
nn improvement greatly appreciated by the passengers. 

The long depression that had existed in the cargo trade came to an 
end in 1888, and was followed by a brisk rise. The opportunity of 
extending its operations -was not lost by the Packetfahrt. A new line was 
started to Baltimore, the despatches to the West Indies were increased to 
six per nitmth, the four steamers of the Hamburger Carr Line, which was 
viOLind-Lip in this year, were purchased, orders were placed for ne>X' 
vessels, and the share capital of the company raised to 30,000,000 marks 
for the purpose of acquiring two more fast steamers. 

Moreover, the formation, in the year 1889, of a line of boats to 
Ptiihidelphia is to be noted. 

The Urst two fast steamers, the **Auguste Victoria** and the ** Columbia", 
were delivered in 1889, and were followed, in 1891, by the '*Fiirst 
Bismarck". This last ship was also built in Germany, and made, in her 
first year, the fastest voyage between Southampton and New York that 
had as yet been accomplished. 

The form and fittings of the steamers of the Hamburg-American Line, 
keeping piice with technical progress, have, in the course of time, passed 
through many transformations. The earliest steamships were fitted with 
wooden bulwarks and deck-cabins. Next came the 'spardeck' system with 
Hat decks and but few constructions on them. This type" of vessel held 
the field on the New York Line till the opening of the eighties, being 
followed hy the three-deckers with bridge, back and poop stretching a long 
* distance fore and aft. In the spardeck-ships, the first saloon on the main 
deck ran from the engines to the stern, and was surrounded by the 
passengers* berths, which lined both sides of the boat. Amidships, and 
rni both sides of the boiler and engine, were the officers' cabins &c.; 
'.vhilc fore, la}^ the second saloon with the second-class cabins. 

FroiTt the very commencement, the fast steamers, by their speed and 
inagniticejice, won the favour of the public. The *Auguste Victoria", whicl 
at first was only I4OV2 metres long, was afterwards lengthened by the inser 
tion of a new part; her measurements then being, — length 159*14 metres 
breadth 1 7*2 metres, draft 10*3 metres. The engines had an indicated H-] 
of 13,3U}, and gave the vessel a mean speed of 19 knots per hour. 

The Auguste Victoria and the Furst Bismarck were in the Nortl 
Atlantic nervice and were also employed as pleasure steamers. In 1904 
both vessels, as well as the Columbia wer-e sold to make room for the two 
large ocean steamers "Amerika" and *Kaiserin Auguste Victoria". It is not in 






.«=; -^ 

























ion in the build of the 

their speed, but in their appointments, size and remuncrativeness, that these 

two new steamers illustrate Uie progress of ship-building. What the 

Company has accomplished in tlie former direction may be gathered from 

the following statistics, which show the different fastest voyages made, 

several of them forming the present record. 

1858 Southampton— New York, *Haramonia" (I) . 

1858 New York— Southampton, *Hammonia" (I) . 

1867 Southampton— New York, ''Hammonia" (II) . 

1869 Havre— New York, '^ Westphalia" .... 

1869 New York— Plymouth, "Holsatia" .... 

1891 Southampton— New York, *Furst Bismarck" 

1900 New York- Plymouth, '"Deutschland" . .. . 

This increase in speed is due not only to modificati 
vessels but, above all, to the improvement in the engines and machinery. 

The Hamburg-American Line was one of the first shipping companies to 
adopt the compound engines, some of their vessels having been fitted with the 
triple expansion system as early as 1886. Their present fleet is, in the main, 
supplied with these engines ; though, to avoid vibration, the latest steamers 
are propelled by the new quadruple expansion engines on Schlick's system. 

The improvement in the machinery was accompanied by a consider-- 
able reduction in the proportionate consumption of coal, the quantity now 
required for one indicated H-P per hour being 65 kg. Of course, the total 
consumption of coal has risen enormously with the growth of the fleet. 
In 1856, the first year in which the vessels were driven by steam, only 
8,000 tons were required. But, from the foundation of the company to 
the present time, 15,000,000 tons have been consumed. 

In 1891, to find employment for the fa^ steamers, which formerly lay idle 
during the winter, the Company started pleasure trips to Italy and the Orient. 

The trial succeeded beyond all jexpectation, the orient voyage of the 
"Auguste Victoria" being a phenomenal success. The trips consequently 
became a permanent institution; and voyages to the West Indies, and 
annual pleasure trips to the land of the midnight sun (first voyage 1894) 
were introduced, the steamer going as far as Spitzbergen. The opportunities 
thus afforded to tourists are made good use of; and a satisfactory number 
of passengers is always obtained. One can scarcely conceive of a more 
delightful journey than in such a floating palace, which carries the voyager, 
surrounded by all the most modern comforts, into the wildest and most 
inhospitable regions of the earth. 

Moreover, in order to extend these pleasure voyages, a yacht, called the 
*Prinzessin Victoria Luise", has been built (1900). It is the first boat specially 
designed for pleasure trips, and has won, everywhere, general admiration. 
Having been honoured by a visit from the German Emperor a few days 
after the trial trip, she left Hamburg on January S'h 1901 fbr her first 
cruise to the West Indies, and has, since then, cruised with great success 
also in the Mediterranean, the Black Sea, round the British Isles, in 
Norway and to the Northern capitals. 

The success of the *Prinzessin Victoria Luise*' and the desire to bring 
these exceedingly healthy and educative pleasure trips within reach of a 
larger public led to the building, in 1904, of another tourist steamer of 
similar dimensions to that of the **Prinzessin Victoria Luise" but with les? 
luxurious appointments. This new steamer, named the *Meteor" and 
intended solely for pleasure touring, commenced its maiden voyage on the 



"Prinzen" Steamer of the Hamburg-American Line. 
{Passenger and Cargo Vessel of medium size.) 

Hamburg-American Line's Tourist Steamer "METEOR", 
for Scandinavian and Mediterranean Trips. 

3rd June 19U4, coasting along Norway up to Droiitheim. -In the following 
month five similar trips followed. Voyages to the watering-places* of 
North West Europe and to the Mediterranean were made in the Autumn 
and Winter months. By the introduction of this vessel, 1st class sea 
voyages have, for the first time, been rendered as cheap as land journeys 
of a similar length. As a consequence, the public have shown there appre- 
ciation of the undertaking in the most lively manner. 

The separation of goods and passenger traffic, — necessitated by the 
Introduction of the fast steamers, — induced the company to construct, from 
the middle of the nineties onwards, new vessels adapted to carrying a certain 
number of passengers and yet capable of stowing enormous quantities of cargo. 

These vessels were styled "Steamers of the *P' class". The first of 
them was the 'Pennsylvania*, a twin-screw steamer, having a length of 
170Vs ^*^ ^ breadth of 18*96 m. and a draft of 1156 m. The engines 
indicate 5,0()0 H-P. and propel the ship at a mean speed of 13 V4 knots per 
hour. The registered gross tonnage is 13,333; and the vessel can carry 
a cargo of about 14,000 tons. The 'Pennsylvania' and her sister ships, the 
Tretoria', *?atricia* and *Graf Waldersee', were, at the time of their building, 
the largest vessels in the world and remained the largest German cargo boats 
till the Ham burg- American Line ordered their gigantic passenger and freight 
slEQTTiers *Amerika' (22,225 tons) and 'Kaiserin Auguste Victoria' (24,581 tons). 
To transport the cargo of a P-steamer by rail, 28 trains of 50 double trucks 
each are necessary. These mountains of goods, by the help of 22 wind- 
lasses, disappear on board through 9 loading-holes. The ships are so- 
called * three -deckers" or "storm-deckers", that is, the structures on deck 
tie BO high above the surface of the water, that, even when the sea is 
running high, it does not become necessary for passengers to go below. 
AU the passenger arrangements lie on the two promenade decks above the 
main deck. In the interior, there are 2 further decks; so that each vessel 
has a total of five, • and, besides its vast cargo, can take 3,000 passengers on 
board. For the transport of fresh meat, there are ice-chambers having a 
capacity at' 33,000 cubic feet; while the stalls accommodate 400 live cattle. 

A further important advance in shipbuilding is marked by the com- 
pletion of the fast-steamer ** Deuischland" . This vessel, which began its 
lirst voyage on the 5th July 1900, was built at the "Vulcan Works" in 
Stettin, Its engines, with 37,800 H-P., afford it the enormous speed of 
more than 23*5 knots per hour. It has cabin accommodation for 767 pas- 
sengers; and its saloons, offices and cabins are so beautiful that the vessel 
soon acquired the title of *The loveliest ship in the world". ''The blue 
ribbon of the Atlantic" was won by her on her first appearance on the 
ocean. Since the "Deutschland" entered the service, a number of other 
[lew steamers have been introduced by the Hamburg-American Line, the 
principal of them being the ""Moltke" and *Blucher". Equal to the ''P" 
liners in comfort and steadiness, but fitted with greater luxury and 
possessing a much higher speed, these vessels began running theii 
Atlantic voyages in the spring and summer respectively of 1902, anc 
^ince then have become great favourites among American travellers, a! 
they represent the latest development in ocean travel de luxe. 

The success of these ships — whose steady motion and unexceller 
comfort and beauty withdrew many a passenger from the elder fas 
steamers — induced the Hamburg- American Line to ord^r two steamerb 
of medium speed but of an exceptionally handsome and roomy type. 



These are the above-mentioned twin-screw steamers •Amerika" and 
•Kaiserin Auguste Victoria". The former, built by Harland & Wolf of 
Belfast, made its first passage on the U^h of Oct. 1905: the latter, built at 
the Stettiner Vulcan Docks, made its maiden trip on the lO^h May 1906. 
Together, they undoubtedly form the finest vessels of the Company's fleet. 
The larger of them, the •Kaiserin Auguste Victoria", with a length 
of 700 feet, breadth 77 feet and depth 54 feet, possesses an average 
speed of 17 knots. Its greatest displacement is 42,500 tons, with 
accommodation for 1,100 calkin and 2,300 steerage passengers. More- 
over, being registered to carry 24,581 gross registered tons, it will 
be able to take a cargo of 16,000 tons. Besides the saloons customary 
on large German steamers, the present vessel is provided with a special 
restaurant under the same management as Hotel Ritz in Paris, thus enabling 
cabin passengers, if they wish, to purchase tickets for the voyage only, 
and to take their meals as they please in the restaurant. 

For the tra^c with Mexico and South America, as well as between Genoa 
and New York, there were built, in 1901—1903, seven steamers of the •Prinzen" 
class, all somewhat smaller than those of the North Atlantic traffic, but splen- 
didly and suitably fitted. On their first appearance in the harbours ofBrazil and 
Mexico, they aroused general enthusiasm, being the largest and most beautiful 
that had ever been placed in regular service to these countries. 

In the summer of 1907 were introduced Ihc "President Grant" and 
the "President Lincoln", — two steamers similar to the P-liners but of 
a larger type. They are about 183 metres in length, with a gross 
tonnage of about 18,120 and an average speed of about 14 knots. Their 
crews number about 344 each; and they can carry 3,805 passengers. 

Another steamer, to be launched in 1910, is now on the stocks. 
Its measurements exceed by 500/o those of the "Kaiserin Auguste 
Victoria"; and it will have a gross tonnage of 34,000.

The larger and moft powerful the Company gfew, the greater became 
• its ascendancy over the other concerns which, in the course of time, had 
introduced regular services between Hamburg and other ports not called-at 
by the boats^ of the Packetfahrt. It was particularly difficult for those 
companies wliich traded to New York and the ports of the same 'hinter- 
land* to compete with the great rival. One such company was the Hansa 
Line, which had been running boats to Montreal and Boston from 1881. 
It was incorporated with the Packetfahrt in the year 1892; and its nine 
Atlantic liners were taken over at a cost of five million marks. The 
voyages to New Orleans, which shortly before the amalgamation had been 
re-opened in conjunction with the Hansa, were now, like those to Montreal 
and Boston, regularly run. 

Thus the company had gradually extended the network of its opera- 
tions from Hamburg to all the principal North American ports of the 
Atlantic sea-board, to the Antilles and to the north coast of South 
America, /. e, from the St. Lawrence to Venezuela. 

But the company did hot rest on its oars. In the 3rear 1896 came 
a new line from Genoa to La Plata. The share capital was raised, within a 
few years, from 30 million to 80 million marks, and the fleet enlarged by 
the addition of new vessels. The year 1898 saw an important extension 
in the shape of a service to East Asia. The Imperial Mail contract of 
the North German Lloyd was shared by the- Hamburg- American Line, the 
number of voyages being doubled and the company placing orders for 
4 large mail-steamers. In conjunction with Lloyd, too, a line of cargo- 
steamers to East Asia was inaugurated in January 1898. The competing 
Hamburg-Kingsin Line was bought up; and soon afterwards a line of 
cargo-steamers was started from New York to East Asia via the Suez 
Canal. The Chinese service received its final form in the Spring of 1901: 
the Hamburg- American Line then acquired the German Mail Line to 
Tsingtau (Kiautschau) and Tschifu (Tientsin), started the line '^Canton- 
Hongkong-Shanghai", joined in the Yangtse trade, (Shanghai-Hankau), 
and opened working departments at Hongkong, Tsingtau and Shanghai, 
obtaining in the latter place extensive harbour room. Moreover, the 
company has increased its coasting trade in East Asia by the lines 
Hongkong -Nagasaki -Vladivostok, (opened in 1902), Wuhu - Chingkiang- 
Canton (1902), Hongkong- Vladivostok (1902), and Hongkong-Port Arthur- 
Chemulpo-Dalny (1903). The year 1903 also saw a re-arrangement of the 
mail and cargo service of the combined Hamburg-American Line and the 
North German Lloyd. The contracting parties agreed, for practical 
reasons, to give up mutual working and simply to avoid competition with 
one another. Since then the Hamburg- American Line's cargo service to 
East Asia and the North German Lloyd's Imperial Mail service have been 
separately conducted by their respective owners. Of course the Hamburg- 
American Line no longer shares the government subvention for the mail 
service to East Asia. In June 1900 a new line to Northern Brazil was 
opened, the Hamburg de Freitas Company's. Lines to South America being 
purchased a few months later. Thus, at the present day, the whole of 
the Hamburg Lines trading with the East Coast of South America are 
worked by the Hamburg-American Line in conjunction with the Hamburg- 
South American Steamship Company. Moreover, since the commencement 
of 1901, a contract exists by which the Hamburg-American Line takes 
part in the service of the Hamburg-Kosmos Line on the West Coast of 


America, to Chili, Peru, Ecuador, Central America^ San Francisco and the 
harbours of Paget Sound; while the Company acquired, in April 1901, 
the English Atlas Line, working, with 7 steamers, 3 lines from New York 
to the West Indies and the neighbouring ports of the mainland, this 
service being augmented by a line from New York to Jamaica. Another 
recent and important extension is the six-day fast tug service started in 
April 1902 between Hamburg and the Rhenish Provinces. In the year 
1903 were added a direct line of passenger steamers to Mexico and a 
line for the transport of ore from the North (Narvik and Lulea) to ^e 
Rhenish ports and Emden. Jointly with the North German Lloyd, the 
Scandia Line of the Hamburg- American Company was extended, in 1904, to 
the ports of Norway and Sweden in order to obtain a share in the emigrant 
traffic from those countries. At the close of 1902 a 'Season Service" was 
introduced from Genoa along the Riviera coast to Nice, — not to mention 
the numerous improvements and extensions of already existing lines. 

In the summer of 1900 came the task, shared with the North German 
Lloyd, of transporting the German troops, ammunition, commissariat &c. 
to China, as well as of carrying the necessary horses from San Francisco 
to the scene of war. For this purpose, the Hamburg-American Line provided 
13 steamers. Furthermpre, the steamer Savoia was fitted up as a hospital ship, 
and placed at the disposal of the German Emperor. In the estimation of the 
authorities and of the officers and troops carried, the company performed, 
in a most satisfactory manner, both the above task and that of trans- 
porting back the troops and horses to Germany in the summer of 1901. 

The Herero insurrection led to the Hamburg-American Line's being 
called upon in 1904 to transfer troops and horses to German South 
West Africa. 

Special mention must also be made of the Company's activity in 
arranging pleasure trips. It was in the spring of 1891 that the fast 
steamer Auguste Victoria made her first voyage to the Orient; and since 
then the service has grown in favour year by year. Besides this vessel, 
other passenger steamers as well as two specially appointed tourist 
steamers — "Meteor'* and ^'Ozeana'* —- make annual trips to the East, 
to Norway (North Cape), Spitzbergen and Iceland, to the West Indies, to 
famous watering-places &c. 

In 1904 the Company took over Carl Stangen's Tourist OfQce in 

In connection with the Hamburg and Anglo-Anjerican Nile Company 
founded in 1905, the company now shares in the passenger navigation 
on the Nile, a special express service Berlin-Naples-Alexandria having 
been inaugurated in 1906. The same year saw the inception of a service 
to the ports of Arabia, Persia and the Sudan, as well as a fast-steamer 
service to La Plata. A year later were bought eight steamers of the 
Woerraann Line, in conjunction with which company eleven regular lines 
are run to Africa. 

At the present day the lines of the Hamburg-American Coippany encom- 
pass the whole globe. In the following list we give an enumeration of the 
different steamship lines which, in 5ie summer of 1907, were worked 
either by the Company alone or in conjunction with other shipowners.

Passenger Steamers to New York, Mexico, Brazil, Africa &c. 

As the fleet grew in size, it became necessary to extend the dock 
room and the various premises. In the year 1903, the Hamburg government 
iiompleted a large harbour with four quays to be leased to the Line at a 
cent of IV3 million marks per annum. Similarly, at Emden, harbour pre- 
inises and workmen's houses for the requirements of the line were con- 
structed. Great progress has also been made in the arrangements for 
emigration, the Emigrants' Hall on the Veddel in Hamburg having been 
opened in 1902. It is a model building which obtained the highest award 
i\\ the last Paris exhibition; and its appointments, both from a hygienic and 
a social point of view, leave nothing to be desired. Moreover, not to speak 
of smaller constructions, the vast quay-premises of the Company in New York 
are also being extended; and large offices have been erected ontbeAlster 
nt Hamburg. Occupation was taken of these vast Administrative Buildings 
[*n Alsterdamm and in Ferdinand-street in June 1903. 

Among the various institutions for the benefit of the company's 
employees, one of the most prominent is the **Invalids', Widows' and 
•hyhans' Fund'*, which has existed from 1888. On its foundation, the 
L'ninpany subscribed to the funds the sum of M. 30,000. Moreover, 
until the concern has become self-supporting, an annual contribution, 
amounting to half the total premiums, is to be made. The members con- 
sist of the • inspectors, captains, officers, engineers, subordinate officers &c. 
M\d of all assistants employed in the head-office, the freight and passenger 
departments, the forwarding offices, in the docks and on the quays. 

In foreign ports, the company owns the following buildings and 
erections: at Stettin a store-shed, at Havre a coal-shed, at Cherbourg a 
ianding-place, at Montreal stores, at Hohoken the landing-place already 
mentioned, at SU Thomas a landing-place with several store-sheds, a large 
coal-wharf and overseers* dwellings, at Kingston (Jamaica) and at Para 
(North Brazil) large structures, at Hongkong and Tsingtau offices, at 
Shanghai extensive harbour room, &c. This year the Company's new 
premises at 41/45 Broadway, New York, will be opened. 

Thus, at the present day, the Hamburg-American Line, so humble in 
its inception, has grown into a shipping company of vast proportions, 
and, indeed, has no superior in the whole world. Does not its growth 
reflect a period in the history of civilisation? Is it not, moreover, prin- 
cipally to the great shipping companies that the rise of German trade and 
industry is due? They have co-operated untiringly, as pioneers, in the 
endeavour to push German commerce to a leading place among the 
emporiums of the world, and to render the commercial navy of Germany 
one of the mightiest and most respected.

Gennany and the German-spealLiDg Coimtries. 

The confines of Germany have varied 
considerably at different periods 
At one time, they included all conntries 
inhabited by the peoples speaking the 
German tongue, whether High German 
or Low German. The lands which were 
under their domination were also in- 
cluded in the German Empire, then 
called <<D«s ttomUeh-Uentsebe Belch". 
Its emperors were l^rinces of South- 
German kingdoms, nominally elective, 
but practically hereditary. The sceptre 
was held longest by the House of Haps- 
burg, into whose hands it past in 1»8: 
it was transferred, by the marriage of 
Maria Theresia with Franz Stephen, 
to the House of Hapshurg-L'rraine, with 
whom it remained till the hamiliation 
of Austria bv Napoleon in 180>. 

In the following year the Reichstag, 
composed of the German Princes entitled 
to elect the Kaiser and to determine 
the politics of the Empire (Electors), 
was dissolved. In its place follo'w^ed a 
federation of German Princes, called 
the Bheinband, which was under the 
protection of Napoleon and indeed 
controlled by him. Franz IL of Austria, 
having lost all real power, dropped the 
title of the Emperor of Germany and 
styled himself Emperor of Austria. 

The old German Empire, or **Eolj 
Soman Empire of the 6eE|nan Nation", 
thus ceased to exist; and the Khembund 
which succeeded it, continued only till 
1813, being then destroyed by the iresh 
outbreak of Napoleonic wars which 
terminated at the field of Waterloo. 

On the 9ti» of June 1815, a new com- 
pact was agreed to among the German. 
Princes: it was arranged that the com- 
mon interests of the different states, 
from Austria on the South to Holstein 
on the North, should be cared for by a 
Federal House (Bundestag) to meet at 
Frankfort o/M. and in which Austria 
bad the conduct of business. It was 
determined that differences among the 
members should be settled by this 
destag. But the organisation was 
)ry loose one; and, in 186H, the two 
ing members of the Federation, 
tria and Prussia, became entangled 
. dispute that was only settled by 
appeal to arms. The result being 
stroas for the former state, and the 
id having ceased to exist, a fresh 
)ration,called the Norddnutsche Bund, 
formed This, under Bismarck's iron 
d, was destined to be the snlvatlon 
ermany, for it is doubtful whether 

her divided members would, otherwise, 
have been abTe to withstand the French 
invasion that followed a few years later. 

The confiiot, known as the Franoo- 
Prussian War, sprang nominally out of 
a disagreement with regard to the Spanish 
succession. It was on the Ifitla of July 1870 
that the disrupture ot diplomatic re- 
lations occurred ^of. Ems, route 97 b); 
while the declaration of war took place 
on the 19th of the same month. 

The decisive battle was fonght at 
Sedan on the t** September, Napoleon HI. 
surrendering next day. Seventeen days 
later, the siege of Paris began and lasted 
through an exceptionally severe winter 
till the 28th of January 1871. On that 
date the capitulation took place. But 
hostilities continued for another menth; 
while peace was not concluded till the 
treaty was signed at the congress of 
Frankfort on the 10th of May 18U. 

In the meantime, on the 18th January, 
the King of Prussia had accepted the 
(mperial title at Versailles. The old 
''Band** was dissolved, and the modern 
German Empire was created, its affairs 
being placed in the hands of a Bundes- 
rat and ot a popular assembly called 
the Beiohstag. 

The tormer consists of delegates ap- 
pointed by the princes of the several 
federal states. The Kingdom ot Prussia 
sends 17 members, the Kingdom of 
Bavaria 6, the Kingdoms of Saxony and 
Wui temberg 4 each, the Grand Duchies 
of Baden and Hessen 8 each, that of 
Mecklenburg-Schwerin 2, the Duchy of 
Brunswick 2 and the remaining states 
1 each, namely:— the Grand Dachies oC 
Sachsen -Weimar, Mecklenburg- Sttelita 
and Oldenburg; the Duchies ot Sachsen- 
Meiningen, Sachsen- Altenburg, Sachsen- 
Coba*-^-Gotha and Anhalt; the prin- 
cipalities of Schwarzburg-Budolstadt) 
Sch warzburg - Sondershausen, Waldeok, 
Beass a. L., Reuss j. L., Lippe and 
Sohaumburg-Lippe; and the small re- 
publics of Hamburg. Lttbeck & Bremen. 
The provinces of Elsass & Lothringen 
(Alsace-Lorraine) are unrepresented. It 
may also be noted here that the Grand 
Dachy of Luxembourg, which had been 
erected in 1815 and lies to the north-west 
ot Lorraine, was formerly a member of 
the Federation; but in 1871, its sovereign 
being the then king of the Netherlands, 
it was not included in the new Empire. 
Since the death otWillftim III. of Holland, 
the state has become, by reason of the 
Salic Law, quite independent. 


The Bandesrat is under the Presi- 
dency of the Imperial Chancellor, who 
is appointed by the German Kaiser. 

All Imperial bills must receive the 
sanction of the Bundesrat and the 
Eeiohstag before they can become law; 
while the executive rests with the mi- 
nistry. This ministry, however, though 
acting for the whole Empire, is really 
the ministry of Prussia. ' Thus, when 
we consider also the preponderance of 
votes which Prussia possesses in the 
Bundesrat, it becomes evident how gieat 
a part this state plays in the concerns 
of Germany. 

Each individual state controls its 
own internal affairs, and has, in most 
cases, an upper and a lower chamber. 
These chambers bear various names, 
such as Herren-Hans and Abgeordneten- 
Haas (Prussia), Landtagr Ac. 

The boundaries of the present Empire 
are: - the Baltic and North Seas with 
Denmark on the North; Holland, France 

and Luxemburg on the West; SwiiE«r- 
land and Austria on the South; and 
Russian Poland on the East. 

These boundaries, howeve*-, are pure- 
ly political: for, if we regard the con- 
figuration of the land, we must draw 
a line somewhere through the middle 
of the country and dividing the high- 
lands from the lowlands, which would 
then include the states to the East and 
West that are historically separated 
from Germany; while the Highlands 
to the South are geogrnphically in- 
separable from Switzerland and Austria. 
Again, if we turn to the language, we 
shall find that the homely Piatt dialects 
of the North differ but slightly from the 
language of the Netherlands; whereas 
they are totally incomprehensible to the 
Bavarian and Suabian peasants, whose 
vernacular is almost identical with 
those of the Austrian and the Switzer. 

It must not, however, be supposed 
that the language of the educated is

to any appreciable extent affected by 
the influence of dialect. Of course, 
many a Hanoverian, Westphalian or 
Hamburgian still clings to his stock 
and steirif whereas other Germans have 
everywhere adopted the Sch pronunci- 
ation; while the Saxon speaks of Die 
Zauperflode instead of Die Zauberfldte, 
But to these little distinctions one soon 
becomes accustomed; and the American 
or English tourist who has thoroughly 
mastered his German grammar will 
soon be able both to understand and 
to make himself understood. For those 
speaking no German, there are, in all 
better -class hotels, either interpreters 
or waiters who understand English. 
But, as by no means the majority of 
the inhabitants speak more than tlieir 
mother-tongue, some acquaintance with 
German, however slight, is desirable 
for the tourist. 

Weights and Measures. From 1871 
the decimal system has been in use. 
The standard of length is the metre. 

which, pointed off decimally, gives deci- 
metres and centimetres. The standard 
of wei^^ht is the gramme, a kilogramme 
equallmg two German pounds, which is 
rather more than two English pounds. 
AS a matter of fact, things are bought 
and sold pro Pfand in Germany. For 
liquids, the standard is the litre. (See 
Tables at end of book). 

Money. The decimal system is also 
in use in the coinage. The standard 
is a Mark = 100 pfennig. A Dollar is 
about marks 4*20. The coins are:— 
Gold: 20 mark- piece (Zwaneign 
stiick), 10 mark-piece (Zehnmarkst 
Silver: 5 mark-piece (Fiinfmarksti 
3 mark-piece (ein Taler — now b

Hansa — an old Germanic word 

meaning originally "troop" — was the 

name applied to an ancient league of 

trading towns in the north of Europe. 

'''*'- first mention of the league is 

in English documents of the 

cent., while Hansagrafen (Pre- 

s of the Hansa) are known to 

existed in Ratisbon as early 

I. The league seems to have 

unded by German merchants 

ad for the purpose of protecting 

'"-thering German trade. The 

oldest guild was that formed in 
London, and upon which the English 
kings conferred various trading rights. 
A few years later, privileges were 
obtained in the Netherlands by the 
merchants of Hamburg and Lubeck; 
and, 40 years afterwards, Lubeck 
allied itself with the Slavonic (Wen- 
disch) towns of Wismar and Rostock. 
A rapid development of the league 
at once set- in; so that, by the end 
of the century, it consisted of four 
divisions, and included most of the 
large towns of Germany, Livonia, 
Esthland and Gothland. Ninety towns, 
from Reval to Cracow as well as 
from Cologne to Lubeck and Wisby, 
joined the league and a great annual 
convention, called the Hansatag, was

instituted for the purpose of seitiing 
its affiiirs as to admission, rejection, 
punishments, disputes &c. Its power 
at this time had become so great that, 
in protection of its members, it even 
carried on wars with Den if) ark, and, 
later on, with Norway. But the p.eriod 
of its greatest prosperity was from 
the close of the 13 th century to the 
opening of the 15th. It had, at that 
time, its agents in the principal towns 
of England, Holland, France and other 
countries, and acted in Germany as 
the channel through which the pro- 
ducts of the North were exchanged 
for those of Italy and the Orient, 
thus rendering Germany the emporium 
of North-European commerce. 

Its great success, however, was 

the cause of its fall. Seeking to keep 
the trade of Europe in its own hands, 
it came into conflict with England uid 
the Netherlands, lost its privileges in 
these countries, and was much crip- 
pled by the competition which sprang 
up after the discovery of America and 
the opening- up of the sea- route to 
India. Differences also arose among its 
members, and it was seriously injured 
by the effects of the Thirty Years* War ; 
so that, by the close of the I7*hcent., 
it had become little more than a name. 
Three towns alone retained their in- 
dependence, namely, Hamburg, Bremen 
and Liibeck (see routes I and 2). 
These suffered severely during the 
Napoleonic wars: and only with 
the development of modern Germany 









have they regained their former im- 
portance in the trade of the world. 


This small republican state, with its 
present population of about 900,000, 
probably owes its origin to a block- 
house built by Charlemagne in A. D. 808 
as an outpost against the Slavonians, 
and called, from the name of the 
'ounding woods, Han:imaburg. 
tecame, in A. D. 831, a bishopric, 
, under the sway of Archbishop 
igar, a christianising centre, not 
f for Jutland , but for almost 
whole of Scandinavia. After 
ing been more than once de- 
^yed by the Slavs and Northmen, 
began, in the 11^ cent., to grow 

into a republic. At this period, its 
Guilds had already been formed, and 
in A. D. 1189, for financially assisting 
the Emperor in a crusade, the little state 
obtained various privileges, the control 
of the city passing into the hands 
of its council. Lying among various 
principalities and between Denmark 
and the Empire, it became the frequent 
prey of its more powerful neighbours, 
from whom it freed itself, more than 
once, by the payment of heavy fines. 
In A. D. 1241, it formed a commer- 
cial treaty with Bremen, and became 
a member of the Hanseatic League, 
in which, however, it never took a 
very active part. Its trade continued 
to develop, and, by the year A.D. 1770, 
its republican character being firmly 

established, it obtained representation 
and a vote in the Reichstag. A few 
years later, the conquest of Holland 
by France drove commerce to Ham- 
burg; but, in 1806, the latter also 
sufTered from the Napoleonic invasions, 
and especially from the consequent 
blockade of the Rib by the English, 
indeed, when peace was concluded 
In 1814, the population had fallen 
from 100,000 to 56,000. The follow- 
ing year, the state joined the German 
Federation, of which it has ever since 
remained a faithful supporter. In 1842, 
occurred the great lire, by which 
over 4,000 buildings, including three 
churches, were destroyed. But the 
opportunity was then taken to rebuild 
the city on modern lines ; so that 

Hamburg forms quite an exception 
among European seaports in present- 
ing to the eye of the visitor a most 
modern, and elegant appearance.

pulation of about 875,000 and, for its

HAMBURG, unlike most harbour 
towns, possesses many fine streets 
and squares, its beauty being also 
greatly enhanced by the Outer and the 
Inner Alster, two lakes formed by the 
expansion of a tributary of the Elb. 
These twin sheets of water, joined 
by the handsome Lombard's Bridge, 
and animated by numerous boats and 
troops of elegant swan, present a 
strikingly beautiful aspect. It is con- 
sequently not surprising that around 
them have been built some of the 
handsomest villa-lined roads of Ham- 
burg, such as An der Alster, Alster- 
damm and Jungfernstieg, the last, 
widened by embankment, being one 
of the finest promenades in Europe.

and its environs. The exterior is 
sumptuously adorned, the front being 
ornaraenied with statues of 20 em- 
perors, while, above the windows are 
numerous representations of Hamburg 
characters, and a series of Hanseatic 
arms. In the interior, there are some 
magnificent suites of rooms:— the 
Phonix Saal, in commemoration of 
the great fire of Hamburg, contains 
a symbolic painting by Fitger, an* 
an enormous picture of the Rathaus 
Room of 1860 &c.: the Kaiser Saal 
possesses a beautiful vaulted ceiling 
in Renaissance style, and marble busts 
of the Emperor William I., Bismarck 
andMoItke: the Haupt Saal (Main Hall), 
41 metres in length an J 18 metres 

in breadth, has a massive oak ceiling 
supported on columns of black marble, 
the walls being of yellow marble. 

The vaults beneath the main building 
form, as is usual in Germany, the 

Ratskeller, to which, of course, 
entrance is free. The ornamentation in 
the Inn Vaults is by Fitger, Jordan and 
others. The vestibule is artistically or- 
namented with stained-glass windows 
and paintings by Allers. In the Remter, 
there are mural paintings by Fitger; 
while the celebrated Rosenkranz Room 
is similarly adorned with a work from 
the brush of DiiyfTcke and representing 
a ring of graceful girls dancing. 

Behind the town Hall stands the

in 18:^9, escaped the great fire, and

was enlarged in 1880. It is one 
of the busiest exchanges in Germany, 
and forms a chief sight of the town. 
Here assemble the merchants , the 
ship-owners and the brokers of the 
busy portf the only absentees being 
such as cannot meet their liabilities. 
Indeed, so identified has the exchange 
become with credit and honour that 
the phrase "He is not on the bourse" 
•« tantamount, in Hamburg, to "He is 

Inancial difficulties". The best time 
see the bourse is a liltle before 

D p.m.: all parts are then open to 

public; while, at this hour, it be- 

imes filled with some 6000 persons, 

J hum of whose voices, heard from 

» gallery above, is very striking. 

e Commercial Library of the 

Bourse contains 100,000 vols, and is 
open from 10 a. m. till 4 p. m. 

Attached to the building is the 
KunsUVerein with a permanent ex- 
hibition of modern paintings. Open 
daily from 9-5 o'clock. Tickets 50 pfg. 
— Sundays and fete days 20 pfg. 

In the same neighbourhood stands 
the Hamburg branch of the 

Imperial Bank (Reichsbank). A 
few paces from the bank is situated 

Stadthaus, now rebuilt and occu- 
pied by the police. 

Near the S. E. end of Lombard's 
Bridge and at the corner of Alster* 
damm and An der Alster, rises the 
Art Gallery (Kunsthalle), open daily 
from 10— 5 (Winter 11-4), Mondays 


excepted. The building is from designs 
by Schirrmacher and v. d, Hude, and 
contains a good collection of pictures, 
the most noteworthy being several by 
Velasquez, Poussin, Guido Rent and 
a large number by old Dutch masters 
such as Jan Sieen, Backhuizen, 
van der Neer &c. On the first 
and second floors are to be found 
works of modern painters, including 
examples of Bdcklin, Lenbach, 
Ackenbach, Liebermann and Anton 

von l^erner. There is also a 
fine collection of ^'English and 
Scotch Masters" presented by Herm 
G. C. Schwabe in 1884. 

The gallery stands on the old 
ramparts, which, laid-out as gardens 
some years ago and almost sur- 
rounding the inner city, form an 
exceedingly picturesque feature.

by the Stcinthorbriicke, Steinthorwall, 
Glockengiesserwall , the Ernst Merck 
Brucke & Kirchenallee. The two main 
entrances are situated respectively 
in the Glockengiesserwall and the 
Kirchenallee. This new station is a 
great acquisition to Hamburg, as it 
unites the various main lines which 
formerly terminated in the Berliner, 
Klostertor and Lubeck Stations, and 
will take over this year the bulk of 
the traffic now dealt with by the 
Hannoversche Bahnhof. This, how- 

ever, will not take place till October; 
and even then the Hannoversche 
Bahnhof will run the Cuxhaven pass- 
enger trains of the Hamburg-American 
Line, as well as the military and ex- 
cursion services to Hanover, Bremen, 
Cuxhaven &c. 

From the Central Station, the

ROUTE A: Having glanced at the 

Statue of Schiller at the opposite comer 

of An der Alster, we walk on -to 





^ i

Alster-Lust, an island in the Outer 
Alstcr with dancing saloons and re- 
staurantSy and, then, cross the magni- 
ficent Lombards Briicke between the 
two lakes. Keeping then to the right, 
we come to the statue of Busch, 
the economist; while, to the left, 
stands that to the soldiers who fell 
in the Franco- Prussian War (Krieger- 
Denkmal). Hence, we pass through 
the Esplanade to Dammthor, with 
the General Post Office on the one 
hand and the Botanical Gardens on 
the other. Beyond the gate there 
stands, at the corner of Schluter St., 
the Central Telephone Office. It is 
a handsome building, — said to be 
the largest of the kind in the world. 
To the north of the gardens is a 

Panorama of the Battle of Worth 
(Franco-Prussian War) and the Zoo- 
logical Gardens, the latter containing 
some fine specimens. 

ROUTE B: Taking the reverse di. 
rection from the S. E. end of Lom- 
bard's Bridge, along the rampart 
grounds toward Steinthor, we pass 
the following buildings: — 

Maria Magdalene Kloster, on the 
right, with a statue of Adolph IV., the 
count under whose protectorate the 
town stood in the 1 3tb century. Across 
the ramparts, at Lubecker Thor, is the 

Botanical Museum, open daily, Mon- 
days excepted, from 10-2 o'clock and 
Sundays from 10-3 o'clock, free. 

At Steintor PI., in the same district, 
is the Kunst und Gewerbe Museum

10-5o'clock. Its collections of porcelain 
and Japanese metal-work are, in Ger- 
many, surpassed only by those at Berlin. 

Re-crossing the ramparts we visit the 

Natural History Museum, open 
Sundays 10 — 4 o'clock, and week- 
days 1 1—4 o'clock, Mondays excepted. 

Continuing southwards, we pass the 
Johannis Kloster, and the site of the old 

Berliner Bahnhof to the Harbour 
and the Quays, which, with their 
enormous traffic, present a striking 
& picturesque appearance. The quays, 
that stretch for a dista'^ce of h miles 
along the northern h i. !< of the Elb, 
are capable of ace )n.>n.iJating about 
400 ocean-going vessels and a like 

number of river steamers, as well as 
a large quantity of smaller crafL 

In the year 1906, the number of 
sea -going vessels entering Hamburg 
was 15,778, with a total burden of 
11,039,000 tons. The number of 
vessels leaving the port was 15,790 
and their tonnage 11,008^000. Apart 
from the passenger traffic to all parts 
of the world, the importance which 
navigation has for trade may be seen 
from the fact that the yearly imports 
now figure upwards of 3,215 million 
marks and the exports 2,628 millions. 

From the Berliner Station, a tram- 
way runs alongside the quays down 
to the New ElbbrUcke, a bridge 
400 metres in length and possessing 
a splendid portal.

From the bridge, a ferry boat takes 
us to Sandihor Quay, which is, of 
course, within the boundary of the

remembered that no contraband 
goods ought to be carried into this 

Passing along this quay, we come 
to Brook Bridge, which, remarkable 
for its two symbolic figures of Ger- 
ntattia and Hammonia, forms tlie prin- 
cipal entrance to the 'Free Harbour 
(Bonded Warehouses). 

Beyond the bridge, we keep straight 
ahead to Hopjen Markt, where the 

beautiful Kicolai Kirche is situated 
(see St Nicholas Church, above). At 
the N.E. of the Hopfen Markt is the 
Trost Bri'tcke with u statue otAnsgar, 
the so-called Apostle of the North 
(see ^History', above). To the left 
are the Reichsbank, Bourse, Town

On the north side of the gymnasium 
runs Speersort St., with Petri Kirche 
(see above), and leading into Stein St, 
where Jacobi Kirche stands. A car 
going westwards takes us to the 
corner of Elb SU, where St. Michaelis 
Kirche (see above) is situated; or the 
same car runs on to the English 
Church at Zeughaus Marki (see above). 
Southwards from this point, and close 
to the river, are the water-works and 
reservoir. The tower here, standing 
on Elb Hohe, affords an exceedingly 
fine view of the harbour &c. 

In the same spot is the Deutscne 
Seewarte, the Meteorological Station 
of the German Admiralty, open for 
inspection daily from 11 — 2 o'clock. 
The Seewarte was founded in 1881 
for the purpose of scientific enquiry into 
nautical and meteorological matters. 
Close by is the Seemannhaus, « 
hospital for invalided sailors. 

In the immediate neighbourhood are 
Circus Busch, the numerous variety 
theatres already mentioned, and the 
Panoramas of "Trafalgar" And of* The

out grounds, as we saw at the be- 
ginning of our walk, add a great 
charm to the town. We can now

In sporting matters, and especially 
in horse -racing, Hamburg takes a 
leading position. The great race- 
meeting, the German Derby, is 
held, every June, at Horner Moor, 
between Hamm and Wandsbeck, 
the first prize being of the value 
of 100,000 Mks. A like sum is 
oflfercd for the Grand Prix, which 
is run, annually, at Gross Borstel, 

a few weeks earlier than the Ger- 
man Derby. 

Two of the most important streets 
of Hamburg are Neuer Wall, be- 
tween Jungfernstieg and the Stadt- 
haus and Alter Wall, which con- 
tains the Town Hall &c. Here are 
to be found many of the finest com- 
mercial concerns of the city. 

JiirgimM & Hohmann, 30 Neuer

for linen goods of all kinds. 

The Deutsche Levant e Linie runs 
a series of trips to the Orient, for 
which tickets may be obtained at

On the way to the Riithaus, we 











notice at 34 Jungfernstieg (Heine 
Haus), the retail depot of Messrs

ei^oy the special favour of the 
Hamburg public. Among their per- 
fumes, we would call especial atten-

This town adjoins Hamburg on 
the western side, and, though so in- 
timately connected with the republic, is 
distinctly a Prussian town having all 
the characteristics of the Monarchy.

In the fashionable street, Palmaille, 
which is pleasantly lined with trees., 
is a bronze statue of BlUcher; while, 
opposite the Central Railway Station, 

an interesting and fantastic fountain, 
presented by one of Altona's citizens, 
has been erected. A memorial of the 
war of 1870 stands close to the 
station, and another in Markt St. 
At 44 PaUnaille, there is a Natural 
History Museum with anthropological 
collections. The town contains also 
a picture gallery m the Real Gym- 
nasium, Kdnig St.; while, in the same 
street, at number 164, is the theatre. 
Outside the town to the west is 
OTTENSEiV, in whose churchyard 
may be seen the Tomb of Klopstock, 
the so-called German Milton. 

From Altona, a line of rail runs 
down the Elb to Flottbeck (leu/els- 
briickej, and Blankenese with SUll- 
berg; but a more interestmg way 
of making the^e favourita excursions 
is by open carriage along the pretty 
turnpike-road that skirts the river's 
edge, or by the well-fitted steamers 
leaving St. Pauli in summer about 
once every hour. The principal 
places of interest called - at are the 
following: — 

TEVFELSBRCCKE, a favourite 
summer-resort of the citizens of Ham- 
burg, and much frequented by excur- 
sionists from Hamburg and Altona. 
It may be reached on foot from 
Altona in 40 minutes, or from 0th- 
marschen Station in 20 minutes: also 
from the electric tramway in 7 min., 
the cars running every 10 minutes: 
there is also electric-car communi- 
cation with Hamburg; though the 
pleasantest way is by steamer (see 
above). Teufelsbriicke is a truly 
delightful place surrounded by gardens 
and parks of a luxuriant character. 
Lying on the north bank of the Elb 
at a spot where the river flows due 
westwards, and, moreover, complc' * 
enclosed behind by the uplands 
Schleswig-Holstein, it receives 
the warm breezes from the s< 
and enjoys, for its latitude, an 
ceptionally mild climate.

BliANKEWESE, a picturesque 
place with a pop. of 6,(X)0, consist-

folk. The spot is surrounded by 

very pretty scenery: the best way 
of visiting it is, therefore, to do the 
outward journey in an open carriage 
and to return by boat or vice versa. 
Among its restaurants the best known 
are the two following, namely: — 

Fahrhans Blankenese, well-known as 
hnving been patronised by the reigning 
German Emperor, who lunched here. 
The restaurant, which affords a lovely 
view ot the Elb, is reached, in 6 minutes, 
by a flight of stone steps leading up 
from the landing-stage.

This three-cornered island, which, from 
1814 till 1800, was an English possession, 
and was then exchanged for Zansibar, 
is well described in the old rhyme:— 
*'Green land, with red band & white sand : 
those are the colours of Heligoland". 

The main part of the island, whose 
total area is but little more than Vf sq. 

kilometre, is an elevated plain, with 
steep cliffs 180 feet in height. At the 
south-eastern base, the debris formed 
by the winds and waves has produced 
an undershore, on and near which the 
town has been built. An easy flight of 
steps and a lift connect the 'unterland' 
with the *oberland'. 

The climate of Heligoland is one of 
the healthiest hnown. Diminutive in 
extent and surrounded by boundless 
seas, its breezes possess a purity p^*- 
haps not to be found at any otl 
watering-place in Europe; while 
presence of such a body of salt-wi 
renders the temperature, from Septt

any other similar resort.

STLT is, perhaps, the most Qurious 
and interesting of all the islands of the 
Frisian coast. Though possessing an 
area of only 40sq miles, it has, owing to its 
peculiar shape, a seaboard of great extent. 
Except in the middle, where a broad 
and fiat Jutland runs out towards 
Schleswig, the breadth of the island 
nowhere exceeds 4 kilometres. And yet, 
in this narrow strip of land, there 
is a most striking variety of scenery; 
rugged and heath -clad hills rising to 
a height of 80 metres, — valleys con- 
taining numerous lakes & tarns, — and, 
on the east, rich pasturea & cornfields.

The commercial importance of Bmden 
is likely to experience a considerable 
impulse from the Bhine traffic, whioh 
has now been diverted through the

BREMEN, the second port in Ger- 
many, contains many handsome build- 
ings standing side by side with the 
quaint structures of the middle-ages. 
The main part ol the town is built 
on the right bank of the Weser, the 
ancient city being surrounded by a 
moat. The old ramparts have been 
laid-out as gardens: at their S. corner 
is Altmannshohe. from which a good 
view of the river is obtained. 

Within the precincts of the old city 
lie the pnncipal 

Edifices, ot which the following are 
the most important: — 

The Rathaus (Market Place), erected, 
in Gothic style, in 1406, with a late-Re- 
naissance fa9ade added in the early, part 
of the 1 7*^ cent, and Barocco balustrade. 
The Gothic fronts are decorated with

figures of ten emperors, seven electors 
&c.; while the Renaissance front con- 
tains a handsome Oriel window and 
gable. In the interior, there is an enorm- 
ous chamber, called the Rathaushalle, 
It is of great historic interest and con- 
tains medallions of German emperors, 
hanging ships, stained-glass windows 
and several noteworthy paintings. 
Beneath the Rathaus is the 
Ratskcller, renowned for its rare 
old wines and as the scene of Hauft's 
'Phantasy*'. It consists of several 
chambers adorned with frescoes by 
Arthur Fitger after the restoration in 
1874. The most celebrated cellar is that 
deriving its name from the large rose 
with which the ceiling is embellished. 
Under this spot the elders of the 

city used to hold their most solemn 
conclaves, proceedings which took 
place sub rosa being kept profoundly 
secret The wines in this cellar are 
Riidesheimer vintages of the years 
1653, 1666, 1727 and 1784. The 
price of the flrst is said to have been 
300 gold dollars in 1653: at the present 
time it is a drink for emperors and 
millionaires only, as, at compound 
interest, the value of a single glass 
is about 1,000,000 dollars. 

Adjoining the Rathaus is the Siadi- 
haus; while, in front, there rises a 
huge figure called the 'Roland*. It U 
historically of the highest interest, as 
it marks the freedom of the city and 
its juridical rights. On the same spot, 
there stood, in the 14th cent., a similar

ertction in wood, which, during a fray 
in 1366, was burned by the archi- 
episcopal party. Fifty years later the 
present stone Roland was raised. It 
bears a shield with a low -German 
(Platt-Deutsch) inscription referring to 
the city's freedom. Such Rolands are 
found in considerable numbers in North 
Germany. Their origin still remains 
obscure; but they seem in some way 
to be connected with the famous 
palladin of the Emp. Charlemagne. 

N.W. of the Rathaus rises a statue 
of William I. To the S.E. stands the 
Bourse, an imposing Gothic edifice, 
built in 1861, from designs by Miiller. 
The symbolic statues at the main 
entrance and on the side facing the 
Cathedral are by Kropp. The walls 
of the various rooms are embellished 
with fine frescoes by Fitger. 

To the W. of the bourse is the 
'SchUtting^ or Chamber of Commerce, 
a building erected in the 16th cent.: 
its west gable belongs to the late- 
Gothic period, and its east gable to 
the early-Renaissance. 

Eastwards of the bourse rises the 
Cathedral, a Romanesque building 
begun in the 11^ cent, on the site of 
a former church. Its original architect 
commenced it on the lines of Cologne 
cathedral: his immediate successors 
took that of Benevento as their model; 
while the whole underwent consider- 
able alteration in the 13 th cent. Aft^r 
a severe fire, in the 16th cent, the 
north aisle was added. In 1638, the 
south tower collapsed; the north tower 
was injured by lightning in 1656 and 
again, by fire, in 1767; the whole 
being restored in 1888. 

The interior contains a fine organ 
and some excellent 14^h cent, reliefs 
&c.: the bronze font is 11th cent 

Beneath the building is the celebrated 
'Bleikeller' (Lead Cellar), containing 
several mummies, one of which is said 
to be 400 years old. The preservative 
character of the cellar is supposed 
to proceed from the fumes of the 

lead melted in it for covering the 
roof: at any rate the vault still 
possesses its preserving qualities as 
may be seen from the poultry ftc. 
hanging in it. 

At the north corner of the Doms- 
hof there is a so-called Museum, — 
in reality a clubhouse, decorated with 
frescoes by Fitger. 

Near the Osterthor (East Gate), 
there is an 

Art Gallery, containing, among its 
treasures, a collection of drawings 
by Diirer. 

At the end of Obern St is 
Ansgariikirche, and near this the 
offices of the North German Lloyd, 
the Johanneskirche , SL Stevens- 
kirche &c. 

There are, in this city, a con- 
siderable number of bridges, the moat 
alone being crossed by six. Those 
spanning the river lead to the Neu- 
stadt, where, in Kaiser St, stands Uie 
Industrial Museum, 

Among its monuments, perhaps the 
most beautiful is that to the Emp. 
Frederick IL 

firemen possesses a large free har- 
bour necessitated by the accession 
of the town to the Custom's Union 
in 1888. The place has few monu- 
ments. The most important are: — a 
bronze statue of Gustavus Adolphus, 
designed by Fogelberg, the Swede. 
Near Heerdenthor, in the Promenades, 
there is a Marble Vase: and at Ans- 
gariithor stands a monument to the 
Bremen soldiers who fell in 1870* 

A favourite resort is the beautiful 
Burger Park in the N.E. of the town : 
here concerts take place on various 
evenings of the week. 

The accommodation for vessels in 
Bremen is unsuitable for modern traffic; 
consequently, on the advice of the 
burgomaster Smidt, a piece of land 
was bought from Hannover, in 1827, 
for the foundation of a port, called 

tral; Sansconei.

Sea & Baltic) CANAL. 

This canal, the foundation stone of 
which was laid at Holtenau by Kaiser 
William I. in 1887, is the greatest 
triumph of .German engineering. The 
designer was Herr Baensch of Berlin, 
who completed the work in 1895. 
On the 1st of July in that year, amid 
deafening huzzahs, the opening of the 
canal by the present Kaiser took place. 

The cost of the undertaking was 
about 39 million dollars, of which 
Prussia provided one third. The length 
of the canal, from the North Sea to 
Holtenau in Kiel Haven, is 61 miles; 
its breadth, at the surface, is 195 feet, 
at bottom 72 feet; depth 29 feet. 
It thus admits the passage of the 
largest vessels; while 7 basins, at 
various stations, allow the largest 
men-of-war to pass one another. The 
canal is lighted with electricity for 
night-traffic; but the visitor travelling, 
say, from Hamburg to Kiel, or vice 
versa, should go by the day boats. 

as the trip affords lovely views of 
hill and dale, lake and woodland. 
During the passage, which lasts 
about 13 hours, the traveller should 
not fail to observe the Kaiser Wilhelm 
Monument, at the entrance, and the 
magnificent bridges at Griinthal, 
Rendsburg and Levensau, which 
divide the canal into three equal 
portions. The first and last are 
remarkable for their dimensions, that 
at Grunthal having a height of 157 feet, 
and that at Levensau a span of 
540 feet, being third largest on the 
continent. The bridge at Rendsburg 
is a double draw-bridge for railway- 

The commercial and strategic im- 
portance of the canal to Germany 
is very great. By using it, the 
notoriously dangerous Skagerrack, 
between Denmark and Norway, is 
avoided, and the distance between the 
Thames and the various ports of the 
Baltic IS reduced by 200—600 knots.

The city of Lubeck, the capital 
of the small state bearing the sane 
name, is situated at the junction of 
the Wakenitz and the Trave, some 
10 miles from the Baltic, its position 
rendering it an important commeretal 
town. In the middle -ages, it stood, 
indeed, at the head of ihe Hanseatic 
League, but, at the present day, it 
retains only Ihe trade with Hamburg 
and the Baltic coast. It is, however, 
likely that the place will shortly regain 
much of its former importance; aa a

earlier history is also similar * but 
the place displayed greater pride and 
bellicoseness ; consequently, its fall 
was more campkte. At the saiae 
time it has also retained more of its 
mediaeval character. Of its quaint 
and beautiful buildings the most 
celebrat&d are the following:— 

The MarUnkircke, built at the 
dose of the 13th certtt is one of 
the best specimens of early -Gothic 
in Germany. It contains a pulpit cf 
black marble, some master- pieces 
of German sculpture, a remarkable 
clock (150^^), several monuments 
and the famous "Dance of Death'* 
painted originally in the 15^ century 
on wood.

is built on the gentle sloped of a 
double range of downs themselves

east winds. This position, supple- 
mented by art, renders it possible 
to take complete advantage of the 
beneficial climatic . conditions offered 
throughout the year. 

It is to this exceptional situation 
that Misdroy owes its development 
into a watering-place of the first order. 
It is now the leading winter resort on 
the Baltic, the number of its visitors 
in 1901 having exceeded 13,000.

old Hanse town, and contains some 
interesting buildings, of which the most 
celebrated is the Marienkireliey built 
in the W^ and Ih*^ centuries and con- 
taining double naves. The beautifully 
painted ceilings also date from the 
14 tb century. The Town Hail is Gothic 
and repays a visit. On the market-place 
stands one of the numerous statues of 
Frederick Wiliiam III. by Drake. Here, 
too, is to be seen the house in which 
lived Nettelbeek, the hero who, together 
with Sohilly so bravely held the town 
in 1806/7 till the arrival of Gneisenau.

This once mighty Hanse town is 
picturesquely situated on the left arm 
of the Vistula. The depth of the river, 
combined with an extensive network of 
canals, enables the largest vessels to 
proceed into the heart of the town ; 
and, though the trade of the place is 
gradually sinking, vast quantities of 
Polish wheat and otlier commoaities 
are still exported. 

Dantsic contains many quaint and 
beautiful buildings. Its gabled houses 
date, for the most part, from the I6tli 
and ntt centuries, the best specimens 
being found in the Langemarkt and 
Langgasse, In the former there is 
a remarkable Hall, now used as the 
Bourse, and termed Arius-Hof, The 
interior rests upon four enormous 
granite pillars, and is decorated, in 
a most remarkable way, with mytho- 
logical carvings and paintings. Close

POSEN is one of the most ancient 
of Polish towns, and was the residence 
of the Kings of Poland down to 1296. 
It was also a member of the Hanseatic 
League in the Middle Ages. The Prus- 
sians, who took possession of it in 
1815, built the new part of the town, 
and rescued it from the low estate 
into which it had fallen during the 
wars. In front of the Stadt-Theater, 
on the E. side of Wilhelms-Platz, is 
a monument to the soldiers who fell 
at Nachod in 1866. The RaczyusM-

BRESLAU, with a population of 
about 470,000, is the third city in 
Germany: it stands on the banks of 
the Oder in a fertile plain. Dating 
from the time of the Romans, and 
containing seveial ancient and inter- 
esting buildings, it is a commercial 
place of great importance both on 
account of its extensive manufactures 
and of its wool and grain maricets. 

The city was once surrounded by 
fortifications, and the old moat still 
encircles the inner part of the city. 
Adjoining it are the Promenades upon 
which stand a number of important 
edifices. Beginning at the N.E. corner, 
close to the Lessing Bridge, we have 
the New Government Buildings and 
the ZiegelbasHoH with excellent view 
of the busy Oder. To the W. of the 
latter is the School of Arts and the 
Monument erected to those who fell 
in 1870—71* At the S.E. corner of 
the Promenades is the Liehichshohe, 
a watch-tower erected on the old 
Faschenhastion and surmounted by 
RaucJts statue of Victory, Beneath 
it is a monument to Schleiermacher. 
Passing the Z winger we come to the 
comer of Schweidnitzer St. Turning 
into it, we find St. Dorothea Church 
(14th cent.) to the left; the street leads 
straight through the middle of the town, 
past the Ring, to the Matthiaskirche 
and the Oder. If, however, we con- 
tinue our walk along the Promenades, 
we pass the Stadt Theater and the 
Headquarters of the Military, and 
come to the Royal Palace, leaving 
which on the right, we proceed to the 
Imperial Bank and the Stdndehaus 
at the corner of Graupen St. Opposite 
**■" latter is the new Bourse, a line 
hie building of modern date. Close 
in Wall St., are the old Synagogue 
the Elisabeth Cloisters. This 
et leads on to Konigs PI., where 
can return, on the other side of 
Stadtgraben (moat), to the barracks 
I Law Courts. Behind the last is 
prison, and, behind this again, 
Museum. The latter of these is 

a brick building containing, on the 
ground-floor, a collection of Silesian 
antiquities; while, on the first floor, 
are casts, an industrial collection, the 
library, and some 30,000 engravings. 
On the second floor is a collection 
of pictures, mostly modern. 

Crossing Eichhaumgarten , we 
reach the handsome new Synago- 
gue, standing near the end of 
Schweidnitzer St A car brings us 
to the Ring, a former market-place, 
the middle of which is occupied by 
the Stadthaus and the Raihaus, 
the latter being a 14 th century 
edifice which was well restored 
in 1888. The FUrstensaal is the 
handsomest apartment. 

Close by are the Pillory (1492), 
a bronze statue of Frederick the Great, 
and one of Frederick William III. 
On the western side, the Palace of 
the old Bohemian kings. Parsing out 
of the Ring at the N.W. corner, we 
find St. Elisabeth's Church, a very 
old building but twice > restored: 
the interior is interesting for its 
wood -carving, and windows and 
portraits of Luther and Melanchlhon 
by Kranach. 

Not far from the Ring, on the 
eastern side, is the Church of Mary 

On the Promenades along the Oder 
are the Ma/thias Kirche, University, 
Ursulin Cloister and Law Courts, 
the last standing close to the Sand 
Brucke, which leads across the Oder 
to Sandkirche (14th cent.). Close 
by the Church is the Dombriiche, 
by crossing which, one reaches the 
Kreuzkirche, a fine old building 
containing the tomb of Henry IV. 
of Silesia, 

A few paces further stands the 
Cathedral, parts of which are as 
old as the 12th century; while the 
interior contains many interesting 
chapels, paintings and statues. Not 
far from this building is the Bo-

BERLIN, whose independence was 
crushed in 1442 by Frederick II. of 
the Hohenstaufen dynasty, became, 
in 1848, the residence of the Hohen- 
zoUerns. At the close ot the 1 6th 
cent., its population was only about 
12,000; while, during the terrible 
times of the Thirty Years' War, it 
suffered so severely that the number 
of its inhabitants fell to 6,000. But, 
with the accession of FrederickWilliam, 
surnamed the Great Elector, the town 
entered upon an era of prosperity: 
its streets, buildings and parks were 
vastly improved; and, at the death 
of the Elector in 1688, its population 
had risen to 20,000. The following 
monarch, who became King of Prussia 
as Frederick I. in 1701, continued the 
work begun by his predecessor and 
erected the so-called Friedrichstadt 
consisting of 300 buildings. 

In his days, too, were added the 

Kurfiirsten Bridge, with its cele- 
brated statue, the Observatory, the 
two Churches, on Gendarmenniarkt, 
the Armory, the Academy of Art &c. 
It was the influence of his gay couit 
which led to the introduction of Cajis 
and such like. Furthermore, under \h\^ 
king, the various townships of Berlin, 
Colin, Friedrichswerder, Friedrichstadt 
and Dorotheenstadt were united under 
one administration, and took the 
common name of Berlin. 

Frederick the Great did much to 
beautify the capital by adding a 
number of edifices, mostly designed 
by Knobelsdorff, to whom the capital 
owes its famous though unsightly 
Opera House. Another architect of 
the same century (Gontard) added the 
Domes on Gendarmenmarkt. It was 
Frederick, too, who converted the 
Tiergarten, which. till then had been 
a game preserve, into a park, and 
presented it to the city. 

The strong protection of the king

and the consequent sense of security 
led to the rapid development of 
manufacture and industry, so that 
towards the end of the 18^ cent., 
Berlin was the chief centre of the 
silk trade in northern Europe, and 
gave work to some 2,000 looms. 
Moreover, the love of music dis- 
played by Frederick the Great and 
the , patronage which he extended to 
musicians, men of letters, and«artists 
drew to the place a large number 
of giant intellects: Voltaire resided 
almost permanently in the neighbour- 
ing town of Potsdam; Leasing and 

the, great philosopher Mendelssohn 
lived for a large part of their lives 
in Berlin; while Bach, Goethe and 
Schiller paid frequent visits to the 
city. The French Church (1701) 
on Gendarmenmaikt, as well as the 
French Lyceum, in both of which the 
chief linguistic medium is still French, 
witnesses to the freedom and the 
welcome accorded to foreigners; and, 
as may be seen in the names of many 
still-existing firms, it was the French 
exiles who introduced the various 
artistic manufactures- referred-to above. 
Thus, it is perhaps chiefly to Frederick

When his successor, Frederick 
William II., ascended the throne, the 
population had risen to nearly 150,000. 
This increase necessitated a further 
extension of the city; and the Rosen- 
thaler & Stralauer districts were added. 
From year to year, the place grew 
in importance as a commercial, artistic 
and literary centre ; and even the inter- 
ruption caused in its development by 
the Napoleonic wars produced but a 
temporary check in its growth. The 
FriedrichWilhelm Academy of Medicine, 
the School for Veterinary Surgeons and 

the Artillery Academy took a leading 
place among the scientific institutes 
of the country; while in 1810, the Uni- 
versity at Frankfort o/O. was transferred 
hither. From the fall of Napoleon, in 
1815, onwards, the rise in the impor- 
tance of Berlin has been very marked, 
the development, since it became, in 
1871, the metropolis of the German 
Empire, being, in the old world, un- 
paralleled and the present population 
of Greater Berlin now numbering more 
than 2Vi millions.

taught in a special Oriental Seminary; 
while in Charlottenburg there are the

another "Hoohsohnle** was added to these. 
On that day was inaugurated the already

probably destined to draw large numbers 
of students from abroad seeking a com-

A Walk through the City. 

Unter den Linden, with its two 
double rows of lime-trees forming a 
fine Avenue from Brandenhurger 
Thor on the W. to Schloss Brucke 
on the E., is the finest thoroughfare in 
Berlin; round it stand a great number 
of celebrated buildings. Walking east- 
wards from Friedrich St., we come 
first to the Academy Building on the 
N. side, an edifice erected at the close 
of the 17th cent., and shortly to be 

demolished, (cf. pages 81 and \Vi), 
Behind it are the old Royal Stables 
which face to Dorotheen St., and oppo- 
site which is the University Library, 
At the end of the a venue of limes rises 
a fine equestrian statue of Frederick 
ike Great, designed by Rauch: *the 
monument is over 40 feet in height, 
and the pedestal contains figures 
depicting scenes from the great king's 
life, togetl er with symbolic figures 
of Stoength, Wisdom, Justice and 


MiTderalion. The other figures re- 
rre!5ent contempoiary princes and 
generals, poets and philosophers. 

The building to the N. of the 
statue is the University, once the 
palace of Frederick II*s brother. In 
foht of It are statues of Alexander 
von Huntholdt (Begas) and his 
brother William (Otto). 

Behind the University is a horse- 
chestnut grove, with a bronze statue 
of Harzer the chemist; while, to the 
N., across Dorotheen St., is a bust 
(^f Hegel. On the eastern side of 
the grove are the 'Sing-Academie' 
and, close by, the Treasury, Be- 
tween the latter and the ^'Linden" is 
the Royal Watch House, where the 

guards are stationed. It is a build- 
ing by Schinkel in Doric style. Next 
to it is the Armory, a handsome 
building, begun by Nering in 1695 
and completed by Schliiter and others. 
The second of these architects added 
the fine series of sculptures which 
embellish the exterior. The ground 
floor contains a museum illustrative 
of engineering and artillery. 

Opposite the southern side of the 
statue of Frederick the Great is the 
Palace of Kaiser Wilhelm /., now 
styled, by imperial edict, the Great: 
the building is open to the public, 
and contains the Emperor's study, 
some sculptures by Rauch, and the 
apartment of the Empress Augusta 

Unter den Linden 16, 1*' floor. 


Unter den Linden 16, 1*' floor. 





&c. The whole building extends into 

iiehren St. behind the Royal Library. 

This is a Rococo edifice containing about 

1.000,000 vols., and some 25,000 MSS., 

including those of Luther's bible, 

Gutenberg's bible on parchment (the 

first book printed with movable types); 

Melanchthon's report on the Diet of 

Worms, the Codex Wittekindi, an Sth 

century copy of the Gospels supposed 

to have been given to Duke Wiltekind 

' '"axony by Charlemagne &c. On the 

ire in front of the building is a 

ue of the Empress Augusta sealed 

i chair, and a vase, called the Kaiser 

e, which the Empress presented 

ler consort on his 90th birth-day. 

ond it is the Royal Opera House, 

t by Knobelsdorff in 1742. It 

''^ains a fine group by Rietschel: 

the interior, which was thoroughly 
remodelled in 1895, is capable of 
seating 2,000 persons. In the large 
concert-room, symphony concerts take 
place throughout the winter. Behind 
the Opera House is the large catholic 
church of St. Hedwig, which contains 
some beautiful stained-glass and other 
tasteful decorations. It was built in 
1743—1747 in imitation of the Maria 
Rotunda at Rome. The square in front 
of the Opera House is adorned with 
statues of five Generals by Rauch 
namely, that of Schamhorst, erected 
1822; of Bulow in the same year; 
of Bliicher in 1826 and of Gneisenau & 
York in 1855. Opposite the armory 
is the Empress FriedricWs Palace 
joined by an arch to the Palace of 
the Princesses, on the other side of 


Oberwall St Crossing the Sehloss- 
hrucke (designed by Schinkel in 1822, 
and embellished with 8 marble groups 
typifying the life of a warrior) we 
enter an island formed by two arms 
of the Spree. Only the southern end of 
it is occupied by private buildings, 
the remainder being devoted to royal 
aed public edifices. On our left lies 
the Lustgarten, with a monument to 
Frederick William III. in its centre. 
It is an equestrian statue executed 
by Wolff and placed upon an enorm- 
ous granite pedestal adorned with 
allegorical figures. Behind it is a gi- 
gantic j^raniie basin weighing about 

75 tons. It stands in front ol the 
steps leading up to the 

Old Museum, a fine building in 
Greek style and, indeed, one of the 
handsomest in Berlin. It was designed 
by Schinkel (1824) and has, in the 
vestibule, a statue of the architect 
and several other celebrities. Schinkel 
also designed the frescoes in the 
upper vestibule. 

The museum contains, principally, 
collections of antiquities, some of them 
being of great value. It also possesses 
a picture gallery, which has grown out 
of the collections bought from Mr. Solly 
in 1821 and to which have been added 

75 Unter den Linden BERLIN Unter den Linden 75 




a number of paintings from the Royal 
Collections. The gallery illustrates, 
very fully, the early Italian school and 
the Dutch and Flemish schools of the 
16th and 17th centuries. 

Behind the building stands the 

New Museum (Stttler 1843). This 
is a Renaissance structure of no par- 
ticular beauty; though the interior is 
sumptuously decorated. 

The frescoes are by von Kanlbach. 
The treasures of the interior consist 
of:— (a) Collection of Casts; (P) the 
Egyptian Museum; (f) Asiatic Anti- 
quities; (B) Engravings and Manu- 
scripts; and (y))the Antiquarium, with 
bronzesj terra-cottas, gems, vases &c. 

The National Gallery adjo ns the 

former building. Among its numerous 
collections, there are some gems of art 
which, unfortunately, are badly hung. 
The modern German school — compris- 
ing such artists as Liebermann, Bocklin, 
Lenbach, Achenbach, and von Menzel 
— is well represented. 

Behind the National Gallery stands 
The Pergamon Museum, opened 
on the 17th Dec. 1901. It is an inter 
esting structure in the purest Gree 
style, designed by Baurat Professo 
Fritz Wolff and specially built for th( 
reception of the art treasures excavate( 
at the sites of the three Hellenic citie 
of Asia Mmor, and so constructed a 
to permit of the Great Frieze from t 
altar at Pergamon being arranged 


almost exactly its original order and 
with its original cast of light and shade. 
The main room, whose floor is 
depressed below the surrounding 
peristyle, contains the jnost im- 
portant architectural discoveries from 
Pergamon, which have been gradu- 
ally collected since — in the year 
1873 — the attention of the Prussian 
government was drawn to these 
wonderful relics by Carl Humann, who, 
in the year mentioned, presented Ber'in 

with the first large piece of alto-relievo 
from the acropolis at Pergamon. 

The north-west point of the island, 
where the two arms of the Spree meet, 
is now occupied by the 

Kaiser Friedrich Museum, a new 
triangular building with statue of 
Kaiser Friedrich III. in front and six 
courtyards within for the admission 
of light. The design, which is by 
Herr Ihne, must be characterised as 
an absolute failure. Exteriorly, it is

an inharmonious conglomerate with 

a gable and two cupolas. A double 

bridge has been constructed from 

Wnnfergrahen to the main entrance; 

the approach remains mean and 

ghtly. The interior, though 

ned for the reception of already 

ing collections is as unsuccessful

Bode has laboured at them for many 
years; and, though he has been 
prevented by illness from carrying 
all his plans into effect himself, his 
colleague, Dr. M. Friedlander, has 
faithfully pursued the original idea. 
The chief collections are on the 
main floor. The rooms facing the 
Spree contain statuary and paintings 
of the Italian and Spanish schools; 
the Kupfergraben entrance admits to 
the German, Dutch and Flemish col-

contain a few Flemish, French and 
Spanish works. 

Between the Lustgarten and the 
Spree stands the new 

Cathedral, a domed building of 
pleasing effect, though somewhat 
lacking in breadth of design. The 
entire structure, which is in Italian 
Renaissance style, has a height of 
300 feet, the dome having a diameter 
ol 100 feet The interior is very 
beautiful, and contains several paint- 
ings and other works of art by the 
foremost painters and 'designers of 
the day. 

Close by is Kaiser Wilhelm Brucke; 
while, facing the Lustgarten, stands 

The Old Palace (Schloss) a rect- 

angular structure, some 650 ft. long^ 
and enclosing 4 courts. It is 100 ft. 
high, and is surmounted by a dome 
rising to a height of 250 ft. though 
the form of the building detracts 
greatly from its elevation. It was 
begun in 1443, was extended by 
Caspar Theiss in 1 538, and has since 
received additions and alterations 
at various periods. Though rather 
gloomy in appearance, the structure 
is imposing, and includes some suites 
of magnificent apartments, the prin- 
cipal of Which are the White Saloon 
and the Picture Gallery, the latter 
containing portraits of the reigning 
house from a very early period, as 
well as one of van Dyck*s likenesses 
of Charles T. of England, and some

modern paintings. In front of the 
porch looking towards the Lustgarten, 
there are two fine bronze groups, 
called the Horse Tamers; they are 
by Baron Cloudt of St. Petersburg. 
In front of the building stands a hand- 
some Monument of Kaiser Wilhelm 1. 
This magnificent equestrian statue is 
by Reinhokl Begas and his pupils: 
the main figure is supported by a 
Bstal embellished with bas-reliefs; 
steed is being led by a female 
re of Peace : other recumbent 
res rest upon the steps below ; 
le, at the corners, there are 
e unrivalled lions. The whole is 
.osed by a colormade, which, 
/ever beautiful in itself, decide J ly 
'^ts from the effect of the 

monument, and is only serviceable 
as hiding the ugly ware -houses 
across Ih*? Spree. 

Our representation of the monument 
is a reduced reproduction of a photo- 
graph by the yjoWkno'wnPhotograpkic 
Society of Berlin, 1 Stechbahn. 

The southern side of the Palace 
faces Schloss Platz, embellished with 
a grotesque fountain, which one can 
scarcely believe is by the same artist 
as the monument mentioned above. 
Close by there is a new and t>eau- 
tiful building, where the Royal Stud 
is now housed : the fa9ade is adorned 
with some very fine sculpturing. 
Crossing the Lange Brucke we note

It is of a most spirited design; and 
the figures surrounding the pedestal 
are exceedingly beautiful. Beyond 
the bridge, on the right-hand side, 
rises the 

Town Hall, an imposing structure, 
built of brick and tastefully decorated 
with terra -cotta and granite. The 
interior is very attractive, and con- 
tains some admirable works of 
art, the most celebrated of which 
is Werner's picture of ,the Berlin 
Congress of 1878. Admission to the 
building is free. Entrance to the 
tower is obtained upon payment of 

a small fee ; and as the structure 
has a height of 254 feet and occu-

an interesting view of the city. 
Adjacent are the Landgerickt, the

Central Markthdlle and a Panorama 
of Sedan painted by A. vonWerner and 
Bracht. Following Neue Friedrich St. 
north-westwards, we reach the 

Bourse (Hitzig 1860), said to be 
the first stone structure erected in 
ern Berlin. The fafade is adorned 
a colonnade and a group by 
^egas. The Bourse is a very 
- one. Hard by is Circus Busch, 
nd which stands 
hloss Monbijou: in it is de- 
ted the Hohenzollern Museum, 
lamed because it contains objects 
♦— ^st connected with the reigning 

dynasty. In the grounds is the 
English Church, a small but elegant 
building, designed by Raschdorff. 
Leaving the grounds by Ziegel St., 
we pass various hospitals, and soon 
find ourselves at the northern end 
of Friedrich St. Behind the block of 
buildings opposite, stands Circus 
Schumann; while, to the left is 
Weidendammerbriicke, crossing which 
we pass Savoy Hotel, Friedrich

In front of the Reichstags Geb&ude 
stands the massive . statue of Bis- 
marck, designed by Begas and, with 
the allegorical figures that surround 
it, forming one of the most remark- 
able monuments in the metropolis. 

The character of the design is 
such that an explanation of the 
sculptor's purpose may not be out 
of place. Around the base of the 
structure are arranged a series of 
basreliefs in the characteristic manner 
of Bdgas, that is they are so model-

Etruscan art. They represent the 
growth of Germany embodied in the 
famous 'Deutsche Michel*. The first 
shows him as a child in leading- 
strings, tottering from a goddess to 
his mother, the Earth. In the 
second, he is lying on a bearskin: 
at a short distance appear Roman 
soldiers; while, bending over him 
is a beautiful woman endeavouring 
to rouse him from his sluggish 
sleep. In the next relief, we see 
him, a sturdy but somewhat rude 
figure, grappling with a number of 
youths, who represent the various

states into which Germany, prior to 
1871, was torn. 

Proceeding to the back of the base, 
we observe reliefs representing, re- 
spectively: — Michel running before a 
triumphal chariot; the goddess Bellona 
alighting from her chariot and handing 
a palm-branch to the grateful inhabi- 
tants; and, between these, Germania 

The two reliefs on the pedestal 
represent, — the one, Bismarck being 
crowned with a laurel wreath, and 
the other, the bird of knowledge 
surrounded by the birds of prey. 

Behind the pedestal is a massive 
figure of Michel, moulding the German 

sword: in front of the pedestal, we see 
him bearing the earth on his shoulders, 
in typification of the expansion of the 
German possessions in Africa and 
Oceanea. On one side of the pedestal 
is Germania with her foot upon the 
neck of a tigress; on the other side 
is Fate reclining upon the Sphinx and 
with her book open before her. 

Close by and occupying the centi 
of Konigs Platz, rises the Column c 
Victory. The pedestal is omamentei 
with basreliefs illustrating the Franco 
Prussian War. Above them there is i 
colonnade adorned with mosaics exe 
cuted by Salviati from A. vonWerner'i 
designs* The column itself is sui 


rounded with three tiers of gilded 
cannon taken from the Danes, Austrians 
and French. A figure of Victory sur- 
mounts the whole; and from the 
summit a fine view is obtained. 

On the western side of Konigs Platz 
is KrolVs Theatre, now royal property, 
and prinoipally devoted to opera : con- 
certs are also given in the illuminated 
grounds, hi front of the building 
there is a colossal statue of Moltke. 
A short distance to the.N., rise the 
premises of the Generalstab, a fine 
red -brick edifice, to which a special 
interest attaches, it having been the 
residence of Moltke. Close by stands 
a clumsy bronze figure of General 
Roon, War Minister, in 1870/71. It 

is superposed on an equally clumsy 
pedestal of granite. In the neighbour- 
hood there is a Marine Panorama; 
while, following the street called 
In den Zelten, we pass a number of 
favourite restaurants near the banks of 
the Spree, and, in a few minutes reach 
Schloss Bellevue, a royal chateau 
in a pretty little park, to the south 
of which lies the Grosser Stern, 
the central point of the Tiergarten. 
The Electric Tramway Co. has erected 
here four enormous statues typifying 
the "Chase". From this spot we take 
the Gr. Stern Allee almost to the series 
of ornamental ponds which border 
the south-western edge of the park, 
the largest being the Neuer See, A

Pond to the statues of Friedrich 

Wilhelm III. (Drake 1849) and Queen 

Louise (Encke 1880): the latter, though 

corresponding in general design to 

the former, witnesses to the great 

progress of art during the 19^ cent.

oeror William I. and his generals. 

design is characterised by great 

of artistic beauty. 

I the year 1904, another statue 

unveiled here by the Kaiser. It re- 

presents the Emperor William I. as a 
youthful officer, the figure standing 
in an attitude of easy attention upon 
a pedestal of grey Italian marble, to 
which steps lead up as in the case 
of the two statues just mentfwned. 
The monument is a work of Pro- 
fessor Adolf Briitt's. 

Close by, in Tiergarten St., is an- 
other specimen of the statuary of the 
present century. Here, at the insti- 
gation of Coramercienrat Leichner, a 
beautiful monument was raised in 
the year 1903 to Richard Wagner, 
The structure consists of a base, sup- 
porting a pedestal decorated with Ro- 
manesque blind-arcades, the back one 
rounded to suit the form of th^ chair 
in which the main figure is seated^ 


Wagner's face, turned rather too 
high, is seeking some harmony; 
the same idea is also expressed 
in the nervous movement of the 
left hand, and the flrmly closed 
right fist. Perhaps more beautiful 
than the central figure are those 
grouped around the pedestal. In 
the front there is a fine represen- 
tation of Wolfram von Bschenbach 
(said to have been designed by the 
present Emperor): at the back is the 
Rheintochter and Alberich the Dwarf; 
while, on one side is Siegfried lying 
dead in the arms of Briinnhilde, and 
on the other the recumbent figure 
of Tannhauser. 

deyond these statues and at the 
junction of Tiergarten St. and Bclle- 
vue Allee stands the new Rolands^ 
hrunnen, unveiled by the Emperor 
on 25th Aug. 1902. In a direct line 
northward from it runs the 

Sieges Allee, a fine broad road 
recently embellished on either side 
by statues of the various monarchs 
of Brandenburg from the earliest date 
down to 1888, the year in which 
the Emp. William I. died«^ These 
are a present from the reigning 
Kaiser and testify not only to His 
Majesty's munificence, but also to 
his sense of the artistic. The series 
of monuments has been executed

forms one of the greatest attractions 
in the city; although the general 
effect is somewhat monotonous. 

Each of the statues is mounted 
on a marble pedestal approached by 
a few steps and standing upon a 
mosaic floor. It is shut • in from 
behind by a marble bench having 
the form of a semicircle and bearing 
the busts of two of the most famous

This latter is dissected in the middle 
by the Chariottenburger Chaussee, —

of the Minister of Justice; beyond, 
the Foreign Office, the Imperial 
Chancellory, the Residence of the 
Chancellor and Palace of Prince 
PI ess; most of these may be viewed 
on application to the steward. Here, 
the street opens out into s^ square 
called WilhelmsPlatz, At the northern 
corner of the square rises the Palace 

of Prince Friedrich Leopold; while 
at the southern corner is the 
Imperial Treasury, The street to 
the right is called Voss St. At 
one corner of it is the handsome 
mansion built for Borsig, the intro- 
ducer of railways into Germany: 
the edifice is appropriately and 
tastefully embellished with sculptures 
by Beg as and others. At the 
opposite corner is the Ministry of 
Public Works. A few steps beyond, 
Wilhelm St. cuts Leipzig er St., the 
busiest artery of the city. Turning 
into it, to the right, we pass the 








War Office, the Herrenhaus, the 
Ministry of Commerce, and the 
Royal Porcelain Factory — all on 
the left-hand side. 

Opposite the last are the largest 

general stores in Berlin. They belong 

to the firm of A. Wertheim, and 

have grown, during the past twelve 

rs, from insignificant beginnings 

their present vast proportions. 

I building has a long frontage in 

»ziger Street and a side facade 

rlooking Leipziger Platz. Archi- 

tecturally, this corner is the most 
beautiful part of the whole structure, 
and consists of an arcade of five 
arches supported on large square 
pillars, elegantly embellished with 
figures of a varied and merely sug- 
gestive character. 

Leipziger Platz, with statues of

large open space in which the street 
ends is called Potsdamer Platz: — 
to our right is the handsome Palasi 
Hotel; opposite is Bellevne St., 
leading to the Tiergarten; to the 
left is Potsdamer Station, in Konig- 
griLtzer St., down which we now 
turn. At the corner of the first street 
to the left is the 

Ethnographical Museum (Museum 
fiir Volkerkunde) a fine Renaissance 
edifice in pentagonal form. The collec- 
tions are very interesting, and include 
the relics excavated by Schliemann 
on the site of Troy. 

In the court, which is roofed 
with glass, are deposited a number 
of large objects, such as:— a copy 

of the celebrated stone calendar of 
the Aztecs, a Siamese statue, cast 
of the Holy Gate at Sanchi in India ; 
and two ancient German canoes found 
in the Werra and Weser. The ground- 
floor contains the Schliemann col- 
lections and a number of prehistoric 
articles discovered in various parts 
of Germany and Poland. The first 
floor consists of eight rooms, in 
which the collections are arranged 
geographically, the first two rooms 
containing African objects; the third

is similarly divided, and contains 
collections from East India, the

Adjacent to it, in Prinz Albrecht St., 
is the Museum of Industrial Art, 
an imposing structure in Renaissance 
style, with a remarkable vestibule 
lOO ft. in diameter and circular in lorm. 
It contains extensive collections. 

Opposite stands the Abgeordneten 
Haus (Chamber of Deputies). Beyond, 
we re-enter Wilhelm St. and, turning 
to the right, pass Prinz Albrecht 
Palais, and continue in the same 
direction to 

Belle Alliance Platz, embellished 
with a Column of Peace, erected 

in 1840 and commemorating the 
anniversary of 1815; the figure of 
Victory with which the column is 
crowned is by Rauch. From Belle 
Alliance Platz, streets radiate in 
various directions. To the south is 
Hallesches Thor. Northwards opens 
Friedrich St. down which, on the 
left-hand side, is Apollo Theater 
Restaurant and opposite this, Re- 
staurant Friedrichshof and Ca^ 
Fri$drichshof, — both very favouril 
resorts. At the corner of Friedrich St. 
and Leipziger St. rises the Equitahl 
Building, a handsome pile, in whic' 
the American Consulate is locatec 
A short distance down Leipziger Si 
towards Potsdamer Platz is the 


I^em General Post Office, a strik- 
ins ^^^ somewhat florid structure 
containing a very interesting "Postal 
Museum'*, This building stands at 
the corner of Mauer St., through 
which an electric tramway runs. 
In this street is Trinity Church, 
made celebrated by the oratory or 
Schleiermacher. The building stands 
Opposite Hotel Kaiserhof, in which 
the fashionable balls take place. 
Following the tramway lines, we 

turn into Tauhen St. where the new 
Urania stands: this is a scientific 
institute containing numerous models 
of great interest, and lecture rooms 
where leading men of science and 
of letters frequently give popular 
lectures accompanied by experiments, 
dissolving views &c. 

Tauben St. debouches on Gen- 
darmen - Markt, between the Royal 
Playhouse (Schauspielhaus — recent- 
ly renovated) and the Neue Kirche, 







The former, designed by Schinkel 

(1819), is royal property, and is 

embellished with groups by Tieck

out Hausvogtei Platz, the centre 
of the cloak and allied trades. Its 
eastern side is closed-in by the 
Imperial Bank, a fine Renaissance 
structure designed by Hitzig (1870); 
it is built of coloured brick and 
adorned with figures of Industry, 
Commerce &c. Walking round the 
back into Kur St. we may visit the 
Royal Mint, whose beautiful frieze, 
executed by Schadow from designs 
by Gilly, is a representation of the 
different methods of treating ores 


and metals. In the neighbourhood 
is the General Telegraph Office, ' 
while southwards is Spittelmarkt, 
one of the busiest spots in the 
city. Here is the E. end of Leip- 
ziger St., turning into which we 
pass, at No. 75, the site of the 
old Abgeordnetett'Haus now re- 
placed by a handsome block let 
out as offices &c. Opposite lies

years ago an open market - place, 

is now one of the most beautiful 

squares in Berlin: the statue on the 

square is that of Baron von Stein.

an admirable artificial water - fall. 
The summit is surmounted by a 
Gothic obelisk, designed by Schinkel 
and ornamented with reliefs and 
statues by Ranch, Wichmann and 
Dieck. From this height a fine and 
unbroken view is obtained across 
the city. In the grounds, there are 
marble busts of the following German 
poets: — Riickert, Korner, Arndt, 
H. V. Kleist and M. Schenkendorf. 
At the foot of the hill lies Tempel- 
hofer Peld, where military manoeuvres 

and reviews take place. In the same 
neighbourhood is Hasenheide, con- 
taining the rifie-butts. 

In the N. of Berlin, in Alt-Moabit, 
stands the exhibition building of the 
Academy of Arts. Beyond it rise 
the handsome Criminal Courts, with 
a fine brpnze group in front. 

The western districts of the city 
are somewhat extensive. They con-

is scientifically, the leading one on 
the Continent of Europe. The number 

of species represented has risen, 
under the present directorship of 
Professor L. Heck and F. H.Meissner, 
to over 1300. The collection of beasts 
of prey is unrivalled. It possesses, 
for instance, rare tigers from no fewer 
than siK different geographical zones:

be seen nowhere else. The collection 
of grallatores is very .complete, and 
includes nearly eveiy existing type 
of cranes and storks. The aviary 
contains some hundreds of cages, 
with l.SO varieties of parrots, and 
nearly 300 other sorts of exotic birds 
(among them birds of paradise): the 
arrangement is of a most systematic 
and instructive character, such as 
is to be found nowhere else in the 

The institute is, moreover, rendered 
doubly attractive by the beauty of 
the buildings and the grounds. By 
the employment of an exotic style, 
the exotic animals have been brought 
into harmony with their surroundings; 
and the best Berlin architects have 
thus succeeded in making the place 
architecturally interesting. 

The Elephant House is an Indian 
pagoda; the Buffalo House is Ameri- 
can Indian ; the Stork House a Japanese 
Temple; and the Ostrich House ancient 
Egyptian. Finally, the Antelope House, 
Monkey House and Aviary, are oriental 
in style; while, at the entrance in 
Kurfiirstendamm, there rises quite a 
Japanese quarter; consisting of work- 
shops, offices, and the highly original 
Elephant Gate. 

Last but not least, the Zoo is the 
rendezvous of good society; the 
children of the higher classes, who 
inhabit the West-End, are seen playing 
here every day: while old and young 
find recreation and amusement on 
the tennis-lawns and in the beautiful 
shady park which has been recently 
embellished with a Group of Centaurs 
by Reinhold Begas, (in front of the 
Antelope House) and with a Group 
of Nymphs in the Water Temple, by 
K. von Ochtritz. 

On fine summer evenings, thousands 
of visitors stream along the prome- 
nades near the band -stand where 
some 10*000 seats hkve been provided: 
the military concert is given by two 
bands of the Guards, playing alter* 
nately, and forms one of the principal 
attractions of the place. 

In winter, the excellent string band 
attracts, daily, a numerous throng in 
the splendidly fitted auditorium. 

In Kurfurstendamm rises the Kaiser 
Wilhelm Geddchtnis Kirche (Memorial 
Church). It is a handsome Romane- 
sque structure with a tower 370 ft. 
high, and possesses a most magnifi- 
cent and, indeed, somewhat florid 
interior, whose finest ornament is the 
altar-piece. The organ is electric and 
contains 80 stops and 4,800 pipes. 

Close by is the boundary between 
Berlin and the genteel suburb of

Underground Station, only hotel in 
the Tier-Garten — a beautiful tranquil 
spot — every comfort. — Here, in Kant 
St., near Zoologischer-Garten Station, 
stands the handsome Theater des 
Westens; while a short distance 
northwards and separated from the 
'Zoo* by the Hippodrome, is the 

Technische HochschuU, a fine 
building, just outside the Tiergarten. 
It was designed by Lucee and 
Hitzig, and is a large structure 
embellished with various busts ar. 
statues, and fitted with all the latest 
appliances required for technica 
instruction and study. Two of th< 
statues, namely those of Siemens 
and Helmholtz, were unveiled in th< 
year 1899 in connection with th 
hundredth anniversary. 



Close by Bland two important 
buildings, viz^, the Kunstschule and 
the HochsckuU fiir Musik. The in- 
struction 13 in the hands of some of 
the leading professors of Germany; 
and numerous Annerican and English 
students are to be found here. 

Some distance further on rises the 
Royal Palace, a large pile of build- 
ings, commenced in 1695, and en- i 
larged by Knobeisdorff in 1741. The 
building is interesting, but only the 
suite of apartments formerly occu- 
pied by King Frederick I. is open 
to the public. To the right of the 
building is the Orangery, 10 minutes 
beyond which stands 

The Mausoleum, for which tickets 
must be taken at the palace. It 

is a Doric structure designed by 
Gentz. In the vestibule, there is a 
large figure of the Archangel Gabriel, 
upon which a curious blue light is 
cast by the stained-glass windows. 
Within the mausoleum, there lie 
interred the remains of Frederick 
William III. and of his consort 
Queen Louise, as well as of the 
Emperor William I. and the Empress 
Augusta. The finest sculptures are, 
perhaps, the recumbent figures of 
the first two, that of Queen Louise 
being remarkably fine. It was exe- 
cuted by the loving hand of Rauch, 
who, originally a gardener, was 
taught his art at the expense of the

DRESDEN, well-called the Floi 

of the North, is picturesquely situi r 

on the banks of the Elbe: it is i 

capital of the kingdom of Sax r, 


and has been the residence of the 
sovereigns from 1485. The city is 
divided into the Neustadt on the N. 
side of the river and the Allstadt on 
the S. side. In the former is situated 
the railway station connected with 
the new town by the Eisenbahtt' 
brucke, a bridge which has also a 
footway. There are also lour foot 
and vehicular bridges connecting the 
old and new towns, namely:— the 
Augustusbriicke, the Queen Carola' 
briicke (a line structure affording a 
pleasant view), the Alberibrucke and 
the Marienbriicke, Commencing a 
walk through the town from the Railway 
Station, we pass through Kaiser Street 

to Kaiser Wilhelm Platz, where 
the Japanese Palace and Garden 
are situated. The edifice contains 
the Royal Library, which consists 
of nearly 400,000 vols, and about 
3,000 manuscripts , including the 
oldest Bohemian Bible and many 
other fine productions; moreover^ the 
collection of maps, incunabula &c., 
is very extensive. Close by are 
Korner^s House, the Kdrner Museum, 
the Ministry of Justice and the 
War Office, This last stands at 
the corner of Neustadter Markt, on 
which is erected (1736) the enormous 
equestrian statue of Augustus II. 
Under this ruler, Dresden became 

the most important centre of art in 

Northern Germany. Furthermore, in his 

reign the Z winger was founded, and 

porcelain invented (Bottger 1709). 

Crossing Augustus Bridge — built 

in the 13 th and 14 th centuries and 

completed, as it now stands, in 1727 

— we arrive at Schloss Platz and 

the Royal Palace, (This bridge is 

rtly to be demolished.) In front 

he Landtagsgeb&ude there stands 

onument, by Baumbach, to King 

!rt, the famous royal general 

whom Moltke said "He never 

idered". This edifice was begun 

\ugustus in 1534, and, having 

i added-to at various architectural 

^ )resents a somewhat motley 

appearance. The back of the E. wing 
is decorated with sgraffito work by 
Walther; while the throne -room is 
adorned with frescoes. 

On the ground -floor, there is a 
valuable collection of coins. On the 
same floor is the Grune Gew51be 
(Green Vault), containing a splendid 
collection of curiosities, carved ivory 
and hammered work, the crown jewels 
of Saxony &c. 

Connected with the Schloss by cover- 
ed corridors are the Roman Catholic 
Court Church & the Ptinzen Palais, 
The former is Catholic, the reigning 
dynasty professing the Roman faith. 
The Church was built in 1 739 in Barocco 
style by Gaetano Chiaveri: its organ

(2,896 pipes), {s the last and largest 
built by Silbermann. In the middle of 
Theater Platz stands a fine equestrian 
statue of King John, by Schilling, 
the pedestal of which is adorned with 
friezes. On the other side of the 
square stands the Court Theatre, a 
handsome Renaissance structure, de- 
signed by the elder Semper and 
carried out by his son. 

It occupies the same site as an 
earlier theatre, opposite the Roman 
Catholic Church. The building is richly 
adorned with paintings and has a 
bronze quadriga by Schilling above 
the portico of the main entrance; 
while at the entrance are statues of 
Goethe and Schiller. Beneath the 

quadriga there is a recess embellished 
with frescoes by Kiessling. The re- 
maining side of the square is occupied 
by the so-called 

Zwinger {dungtoTi), built 1711-22. 
It was intended, by Augustus II., to 
form the court of a castle of grand 
design, which want of funds compelled 
him to abandon. As the building 
stands, it presents characteristics 
partly Rococco and partly Barocco. 

It contains two museums, with 
collections of zoological, anthropolo- 
gical and palseontological objects. 

On the N. side of the Zwinger rises 
the magnificent new Museum designed 
by Semper, The porch resembles a 
Roman arch: above it, to the right

vying with such collections as the

It also contains numerous and inter- 
esting works by Correggio, Titian &c., 
and the famous Madonna and Child 
by Murillo. Pre-Raphaelite masters 
are somewhat scantily represented; 
but the Italian schools contemporary 
with Raphael form a very large pro- 
portion of the collection. Specimens 
of the Milanese , Parmesan and 
Venetian schools will be found in 
great number; while there are also a 
few excellent works by Velasquez, 

Murillo, Claude Lorrain, Watteau, 
Nicolas Poussin and other Spanish 
and French artists. Of the Nether- 
lands school examples of all the great 
masters will be found on the walls. 
Between the Museum and the Theatre

At the N. corner of the Zwinger a 
flight of steps leads up to the top 
of the wall, whence the building

Gothic style. Behind the Post Office 
stands the Markihalle. A few 
steps further is the Home Office; 
passing from here through See St., 
we reach the "Old Market'*, in the 
middle of which is erected the Mo- 
nument to the fallen soldiers of 
1870—71. At the S.E. corner stands 
the Kreuzkirche, a modern building 
jrected after the fire of 1897. 
The N.W. corner of the Market is 
jpied by iheRatkaus, built originally 
1741, but extensively remodelled 
»863. The high tower contains a 
iitiful peal of bells, and commands 
ne view of the town. A new

nedrichsring and Gewandhaus St. 

From the N.E. angle of the Alt-Markt, 
we follow Galerie St. and in a few 
minutes are at the "Judenhof'\ Here 
is situated the Johanneum Museum, 
a building commenced in 1856, but 
several times restored. It once held 
the Picture Gallery, but is now the 
depository of extensive collections 
of various kinds. On the first floor 
is the historical museum, containing 
old weapons, costumes and artistic 
objects, and said to be the most 
valuable in Germany. Among its 
treasures may be mentioned the 
swords of Luther, Augustus the Strong

KXCCBSIOirS: The environs of Dresden 
ezoeedingly beautiful. At a distaice 
IVs miles lies the pretty village of 
kmitiy with a monument of Morean, 
» fall at this sj>ot in 1818. Kear it 
be Bismarck Sanley a square tower 
manding a fine view of Dresden, 
nita and a great part of Saxon 
izerland, including Lilienstein and 

it, perhaps, the mos^ popular trips 
vlon^ the right bank of the Elbe 

with its vine-decked hills, its villas and 
chateaus of which the finest is that at 
Albreebtabnrg. A short distance beyond 
this are Villa Stock hausen and Villa 
Ec^berg; while, some 9 miles further, 
is Welsser Hirseh, (see below). Still 
further lie Losehwiti, and Blasewita 
and. about 8 miles from Dresden 
Pillnitz (at an elevation of 870 leet). 
This last place contains a royal chateau 
whose chapel and dining-room are em* 
bellished with, fine^ frescoes: in the 


oeighboxirhood, there are some excellent 
points of yiew. the best being that from 
Porsberg 0,186 feet), abont 8Vi miles 
firom the town. 

PillnltSy as well as the other stations 
on the Blbe> snoh as Pima, KSnigrsteiny 
Sohandsa Ae.y are best reached by the 
steamboats of the Saehsiseta-BShmisehe 
Dampfsehiffahrts-Gesellsehsfty in con- 
nedtion with which we quote the 
following: — 

'To leave Dresden without having 
taken a steamboat trip on the Elbe is 
to have left the "Northern Florence" 
with but a very imperfect idea of 
its attractions. It is, indeed, diffi- 
cult to find another town with such 
delightful surroundings as Dresden, 
whose Elbe Valley, both upstream 
and downstream, is filled with ex^ 
quisite scenery. 

'Though the Elbe does not possess 
that imposing grandeur for which 
the Rhine is celebrated, thts want is 
counterbalanced by the soft beauty of 
its hills. From the deck of the river- 
steamers, the charming landscape may 
be enjoyed to the full; while one has 
also the comfort and ease which this 
means of travelling alone affords. 
Doubtless, it is for these reasons that 
most of the visitors to Dresden and 
Saxon-Switzerland prefer to make use 
of the steamers of the Sdchsisch- 
Bohmische Dampfschiffahrts- Gesell- 
schaft, rather than to be cooped up 
in the stifling compartments of a 
railway carriage. 

'The company referred-to has a 
river-fleet of 37 vessels, several of 
which are chartered to carry 1,200 
persons, the company being the only 
one on the upper Elbe which does 
a passenger traffic. 

'The boats are admirably fitted 
and their restaurants well-arranged: 
the catering is excellent, and prices 
very moderate. 

'The favourite boats are the large 
Saloon Steamers with Promenade 
Deck. These perform the express 
service among Dresden, Pirna.SaxoK- 
Switzerland, Schandau, Tetschen and 
Aussig: they each carry a first-class 

restaurant and offer passengers the 
very highest comfort' 

Of the shorter trips from Dresden 
the best are, perhaps, to Pillnitz, 
Wehlen and Schandau, or to Meissen, 
the pearl of the Elbe. 

Of the more distant trips, the 
finest are to the so-called Bohemian 
Switzerland & the Bohemian MiddU 
Mountains, with the excursionist \ 
centres, Schandau, Tetschen (Boden- ' 
bach) and Aussig, \ 

Tne last has railway connection with 
the Bohemian health-resorts, such as 
Teplitz, Carlsbad and Marienbad, 
as well as with the Prague-Vienna 
line of rail (sep routes 44, 45 & 46). 

The customs revision takes place on 
board of the steamers at Schandau, 

For the trips to Dresden, Pima, 
Schandau, Tetschen and Aussig, 
tourist tickets in conjunction with the 
railway are to be had. 

In the neighbourhood of Dresden is 


a health-resort which has grown up 
in recent years round a village of 
comparatively modern date.

TISITOBS: Annual number of patients 
is 6,0UC. 

SITUATION: The place is sheltered 
to the north and north-east by an 
extensive stretch of woodland country, 
and its situation has long been re- 
cognised as exceptionally healthy and 
beautiful. The village consequently 
obtained renown as a health •res'^*-* 
and some years ago was chosen 
the late Dr. Lahmann for the erect 
of his sanatorium, to which, as 
system of treatment became fame 
some 12 villas were added. 

The Sanatorium, which sta 
in grounds at the edge of the wo( 
is fitted with every modern appljo 


and joined to the Bath-house by a 
closed corridor. Together with all its 
annexes it is heated from a central 
station and thus rendered suitable 
for winter residence. 

Not only the sanatorium but also 
most of 

The Villas are lighted by electricity 
and every other convjcnience. 

The Air-Huts are close to the 
woo^s. As usual they have one 
side completely open, with only a 
protective curtain of linen. 

The Treatment is on the weU- 
known natural lines. Medicaments 
are employed only in very rare 
cases « the physician depending 
on the use of light, air, water and 

diet. And results show how effective 
this method is, especially in the 

Diseases:— aniemia, heart troubles, 
pulmonary complaints; all affections 
of the digestive organs, diabetes and, 
generally, diseases of the kidneys, 
bladder and prostate ; nervous maladies 
of all kinds; skin-diseases, internal 
and external furuncle.

mg distriots, snoh as the nndalating

be explored, in all directions, without 
the aesistance of guides Pedestrians, 
of coursa see the district to best ad- 
vantage; bat parts of the country may 
be viewed from the steamers. 

It is usual to start the tour from 

Potzscha, which is connected by rail 

•"ith Dresden. The Blbe is crossed 

y the ferry to Wehlen, whence the 

'ihlossberg is ascended. In the neigh- 

ifhood is the celebrated 

3asiei (1,030 ft.), which overlooks 

Elbe from a height of 645 ft. It 

I precipitous clilT terminating in a 

up of wild rock-pinnacles. These 

joined to one another by a hand- 

some bridge, in keeping with the 
bastion -like character of the rock. 
The Bastei is unquestionably the finest 
point in the whole district, and affords 
an extensive and glorious view of the 
wooded ravines and broken peaks 
of the surrounding country. 

Beyond the bridge, the path emerg- 
ing from the wood, branches in two 
directions: one way leads to the village 
of Rathen, with its castle ruins, — the 
other io Amselgrund ?in;^ Raihewalde, 
At the end of the main road running 
throngh this last village, one turns 
to the right and, in about Va hour, 
reaches Hockstein, a precipitous rock 
towering above the road to a 
height of 380 ft., that is to say 950 ft. 
above sea-level. From Hockstein, one 



passes throfigh Wolfs Gorge, down 
the valley of the Polenz. The principal 
point of view on this route is Brand: 
here is a little inn, which is worth 
stopping-at for the sake of the prospect 
•btained of the Basiei, Konigstein, 
LiJieustein, Grosse Winterberg Sec, 
Below Brand, the valley meets theTiefer 
Grund, and, about 2 miles farther on, 
at Wendischfdhre, the stream empties 
itself into the Elbe. Here, there is 
a railway bridge with a footway, 
which leads across to the Konigstein 
and Bodenbach Roads. Wendischfahre 
is almost a suburb of the central 
town of Saxon -Switzerland, namely,

LEIPSIC is the third town in 
Germany; it is the largest centre 
of the book-trade in the world and 
the seat of the supreme law-courts 
of the German empire; while its 
university is one of the oldest and 
most celebrated in Europe. The 
town is largely industrial, the chief 
products being leather, porcelain « 
wood -work &c. The city is very 
old, and the streets crooked and 
--•rrow; but its buildings, though 

mostly of quite recent date, are well 
worth seeing. 

Two of the railway stations, 
namely, the Bairische and the Eilen- 
burger Bahnhof, lie to the S. E. 
Three others, namely, Thuringer^ 
Magdebur^er and Dresdner are 
close together in the N. E. of the 
town; while a sixth, the Berliner 
Bahnhof, is right outside the town 
in the same direction. On the 
promenades facing the Dresdner 
Station is an Obelisk commemorating 
the building of the railway; to the 
W. stands a monument to the Burgo- 
master Muller. Hard by is BlUcher PL, 
where the handsome new Bourse 
is situated. Opposite are the build- 
ings of the permanent Industrial 
Exhibition, xSiTid a little further on, 
the Old Theatre, founded in 1766 
and re -built in 1817. Near this is 
the monument to Hahnemann, the 
lather of homoeopathy. Here is the 
entrance to the Rosenthal, a favourite 
spot for excursions: in it are a 
monument to the composer Zollner, 
and a marble statue of Gellert, the 
poet. Here, too, are situated the 
Zoological Gardens, 

Close to Theater PI., at No. 3 
Briihl St., Richard Wagner was bom. 
From the corner of this thoroughfare, 
Hain Street leads direct to the Market 
in the centre of the city, where stands 
the War Memorial of 1870 with 
the Old Rathatis beyond.

This ancient Saxon town, once the

from an artistic point of view, very 
interesting, and contains a celebrated 
old Cathedral, 13th_i5th centuries. 
Its spire, at the S.E. corner, belongs 
to the 15^ cent., and is a fine piece 
of work. The interior of the edifice 
is embellished with beautiful and inter- 
esting sculptures and bronzes, trie 
finest of which is that of Frederick 
the Quarrelsome. In the Georgen 
Kapelle stands the tomb of George the 
Bearded and Barbara his wife. Near 
it is a small altar-piece by Kranach 
the elder. There are also several old 
paintings and brasses; while adjoining 
the Cathedral is an interesting Cloister, 

Close by is Albrechtsburg, a fine 
old castle, built 1471—1483 by Arnold 
of Westphalia for the co -regents 
Ernest and Albert (cf. Altenburg). 
It is remarkable, not only for its 
great size and imposing character, 
but also for its elegant vaulting, its 
frescoes and the charming views which 
it affords. In the Triebisch Thai, 
at the other end of the town, the 

visitor, for a fee of 2 Mks., is shown 
over the Royal Porcelain Factory, 
founded in 1710, the year following

ereoted in the middle of the IBth cent.; 
it contains several admirable pictures, of 
whioh the fineot is one supposed to have 
been painted for Oardinal Albreoht, the

Of the remaining public buildings, the 
most noteworthy are situated at the edge 
of the old city, whose boundaries are 
marked on the western side by the moat 
(M&taleagraben) and on the other sides by 
promenades, which replace the ancient 
ramparts. From the Batskeller, a tram-

WEIMAR, the capital of the Grand 
Duchy of Saxe- Weimar-Eisenach, and 
prettily situated on the II m, has be- 
come classic ground. It was for 
upwards of 50 years the Home of 
Goethe; and Schiller spent the last 
6 years of his life in the same city 
Its most noteworthy building is the 

Schloss, restored under Goethe*s 
superintendence and standing at the 
head of Sternbriicke. The edifice 

contains the room of Duke Bemhard 
and the so-called four Poets' Rooms 
dedicated, respectively, 'to Goethe, 
Schiller, Herder and Wieland. 

The Herder Room is at once re- 
cognisable by the poet's motto *Ucht, 
Liebe. Leben" on the ceiling. Frescoes 
by Jager adorn the walls. 

In the Goethe Room the frescoes, 
which are by Jager and Neher, illus- 
trate almost the whole range of t s 
great German's works, both in poei y 
and prose 

The frescoes adorning the Schil r 
Room are all from the brush of Nel \ 
and are likewise numerous. 

On the walls of the 

Wieland Room, the frescoes are ci 
distemper and are by Preller. In fr< it 
of the Schloss, and on both sides of e 


river, lies a charming park with many 
spots hallowed by reminiscences of 
Goethe: in it, stand a pavihon, called 
the Tempelhcrrcnhaus, the Hume, the 
Rdmtscius Haus, and several monu- 
ments (Prmce Francis of Dessau. Liszt, 
Shakespeare). Here may still he seen, 
near the Park, Goethe's Gartenhaus, 
Not far from the Schloss, at Herder 
Ph, rises the Stadtkirche in the very 
centre of the town. Built in 1400, it 
contains a fine picture by Kranach 
the elder, with portraits of Lulher, 
Melanchthon and Bugenhagen, The 
nave is the restinis-place of Herder, a 
bronze statue of the poet having been 
erected m front of the church. Behind 
the buildmg is the parsonage, which 
was Hercier*s residence till his death. 

Passmg through Ritter Gasse, we reach 
the Hof Theater, built in 1907 by 
Heilmann and L'ttmann of Munich on 
the site of a former edifice dating 
from Goethe's times. It is remarkable 
for its noble simph'city of style and 
its moJern appliances, its orchestra its 
arrangemeiil of stalls, boxes. &c. Before 
the theatre stands Rietschel^s Monu- 
ment tn Goethe and Schiller, executed 
in bronze in 1857. In Wieland St., to 
the N.. IVieland's House is situated. 
Ao. 12 Schiller Si, close by. is 
'Schiller's House^ which, was the 
residence of the poet during the last 
three years of his life* and is now 
the property of the town. Its most 
interesting room is the study, which 
has been left in exactlv the same 



first4:lass family house, situated on the mark*:t place, next

Goethe Ph, where stands the house 

presented by Duke Carl August to 

Goethe and occupied by him for 40 

years* It is now open to the public, 

and is styled the Goethe National 

Museum. The many art treasures 

hich it contains, as well as its 

jcorations and appointments, witness 

the varied but refined taste of the 

"eat mind which still seems to haunt 

i chambers. Very few modifications 

ve been made in the arrangements 

the house. The hall and staircase 

I just as Goethe had them con- 

'icted and decorated in 1 /92. In 

dining-room there are portraits 

and casts. The ''Juno" room con- 
tains the piano played on by the 
twelve-year-old Mendelssohn in 1821. 
P ctures sMd statues adorn every room : 
the mo<t mterestmg are perhaps those 
ill the Deckenzimmer which comprise 
sketches by Goethe. The little Garten- 
zimmer contains Silhouettes cut by 
the poet In the study, which has 
suffc-red no change since Goethe*s 
death, there is an old family clock. 
The adjoining apartment was the poets* 
bedroom, where he died sitting in his. 
arm-chair on the 22od March 1K32. 
In the N. of the town beyond the 
Stadt-Park rises the Museum, in which 
are to be seen the celebrated frescoes 
by Preller, illustrating the Odyssey. 
There are also a number of other art 
treasures, Weimar possessmg, since

1860, a School of Art, of which Preller 
and GenelH are among the principal 
representatives. In the Griine Schloss 
is the Grand Ducal Library, which, 
apart from its 280,000 vols., boasts 
a large number of interesting busts 
and a valuable collection of coins 
and medals. The busts include three 
of Goethe, and one each of Schiller 
(by Dannecker, cf. Stuttgart), Herder, 
Gluck, Tieck, Lessing, Wieland and 
Winckelmann. Of special interest, too. 
is the museum's geographical collection 
comprising 800 maps, of which the most 
remarkable are two of America drawn 
in the early part of the J 6^ century. 

The tower of the building contains a 
winding oaken staircase said to have 
been constructed by a prisoner in 167 1 . 

In a building opposite to it is the 
Russian Chapel, and, on the right 
bank of the Ilm, is an edifice containing 
the "Goethe and Schiller Archives". 

The Raihaus, a fine Gothic erection, 
stands on the Market Place. It con- 
tains Mardersteig's painting called 
'^Bemhard entering the conquered town 
of Breisach"; a purtrait in oils of the 
Emperor William the First; a life-size 
"♦atue of Goethe; busts' of the four 
Weimar Poets. Opposite, at No. II, 
the house which was once the 

sidence of the two Kranachs. 

The Cemetery contains the FUrsten- 

m// (Princes' Crypt) with the tombs 

the princes and also of Schiller 

'd Goethe.

The statue of Shakespeare, near the 
Liszt Museum, represents the poet in 
early manhood: he holds a rose in his 
hand and appears to be in animated 

On a hill -slope to the soutk of

Eisenach Town. 

EISENACH TOWN. Close to the 
entrance to the town is the Nicolai- 
kirchc, built in 1150, in late- 
Romanesque style, and restored in 
1887: at the same time, by means of 
a tasteful addition, it was connec'ed 
with the beautiful Romanesque Nicolai 
Tower, Before the church stands 
Donndorf*s Monument to Luther^ re- 
presenting the reformer at various 
. periods of his life. 

St, George's Church is a late-Gothic 
edifice in the Markt PI. surrounded by 

1269, against Margrave Henry; the 
Luther House, not far from that of 
Ba^h and in which Luther is sajd to 
have lived as a lad with Frau Coita 
(1498): in the middle of the Markt 
Pi. is a gilded statue of St George, 
In the cemetery stands a hfe - size 
bast marking the spot where the 
remains of Fritz Reutet repose. This 
celebrated author, who has rendered 
classic ihfi Piatt dialect of Mecklenburg, 
occupied for some years a villa at the 
head of Marienthal. The house has 

a number of old lime-trees. Opposite j been opened as a 'Reuter Museum* 
stands the Grand-Ducal Schloss, b jilt ' (9—1 2 ; 2 - 6).

with a memorial tablet Behind the 
church is a monument commemorating 
the events of 1870—71. Close by is 
the Ralhiu^, embellished with Prof. 
Martersteig's picture of St. Elisabeth 
entering the Wariburg. 

Other hui;dings worth visiting are: — 

The Klemda, a castle erected by 

the Duchess Sophia of Brabant, in 

esting among the many interesting 
sights of Saxe- Weimar. Built in 
1067 by Lewis the springer in 
Romanesque style, it was thoroughly 
but tastefully, restored by Dr. voi 
Ritgen in 1847. It was the residence o 
various reigning dynasties, from th. 
time of its foundation down to 144C 
Under Hermann L (1190 to 1216)

the arena in which, according to tradi- 
tion, Walther von der Vogelweide (cf. 
Wiirzburg) and other minstrel poets 
strove for the mastery. 

But the great interest attaching 
to the Wartburg centres in its con- 
nection with Luther, The great Re- 
former, after bis second appearance 
before the Reichstag, left Worm*? 
on 26t>h of April 1521. A few days 
later, his? little cavalcade was sur- 
prised by a number of masked 
riders acting under instructions from 
the Elector Frederick the Wise of 
Saxony. This prince, being a friend 
of Luther's, had him placed in the 
Wartburg; where he remained hidden, 
under the name of "Junker Georg*\ 
till the first of March 1522. During 
this period, he issued from his hiding- 
place many a telling pamphlet, and 
began, in December, his celebrated 
translation of the Bible. 

The Luther Room in the Wartburg 
is situated in the northern part of 
the building called the Vorburg, It 
is in almost the same condition as 
when Luther left it, and contains the 
reformer's table, his armour as *' Junker 
Georg", some of his letters, his book- 
case and other objects intimately con- 
nected with the great translation of 
the Bible arid similar literary labours. 
One day, while at work, he is said to 
have seen the devil making mouths 
«t him, and flung his inkpot at the 
isitor's head: Satan ducked, and the 
ik spurted all over the wall. The origi 
al stain having been chipped off "by 
inglo-Saxon tourists", a new one was 
lade which followed a like fate. 

The finest part of the Wartburg, 
rom an architectural point of view, is 
he Hofburg^ in which the Land- 
raves of Thuringia formerly lived. It 

contains the Room of the Landgraves, 
decorated with 2 modern frescoes illu- 
strating historical scenes; the Sdnger- 
saal is adorned with portraits of Liszt, 
Wagner, Kaulbach &c., introduced into 
a fresco representing the tradition re- 
ferred*K> above. The Elisabeth Gallery 
is adorned with frescoes illustrating the 
life of St. Elisabeth, whom **Tann- 
hauser" lost through revealing, in his 
love-song at the Minstrels' Contest, that 
he had visited the .Mount of Venus. 
Beyond it, is the Chapel, with old 
stained - glass and wall-paintings. 

Other interesting rooms are the 
Armory in the Dirnitz, the Stables, 
and the Tower, From the Kanonen 
Battery, to the left of the entrance, 
a good view of the whole building 
is obtained. The Kemenate now 
shown to visitors, is furnished for the 
use of the Grand Ducal family. It 
contains 18 pictures representing 
incidents in the life of Luther. 

EISENACH SPA (See also historical 
introduction above & notice on page 2). 
— The spa which adjoins the town 
on the south-eastern side, consists 
of a Pavilion, Pump Rooni and other 
buildings situated in a delightful un- 
dulating park some thousands of acres 
in extent and filled with grand, spread- 
ing trees, many of them hoar with 
age and storied by tradition. 

But though the surroundings art 
so old, the spa itself is quite modern. 
Down to the year 1906 Eisenach de- 
pended solely on its salubrious climate 
as a health-resort. In that year, how- 
ever, the spa was opened, the waters 
of the Grossherzogin KarolinenquelU 
having been condulted to the new 
Pump Room from an estate called 
Wilhelmsgliicksbrunn some little dis- 
tance from the town. 


These waters were in repute from 
the 14th cent, to the middle of the IQth. 
During the 18^^ cent, over a million 
pounds of salt were annually ohtum d ; 
while quantities of Glauber's Salts 
were yielded by the maher-Iye. 
Later on, the waters were turned to 

medicinal purposes and a primitive 
bath-house was erected at Wilhelms- 
^lucksbrunn; and the statistics for 
the years 1840—1843 show a re- 
markably high proportion of cures. 
Mismanagement, however, led to 
neglect of the place; and the watet^ 

were even forgotten, until the recent 
efforts of the Chief Burgomaster 
Schmteder, of Herr von Dreyse. the 
Commercial Counsellor, and others 
fought them again into notice and 
gave them the rare opportunity t ey 
iiow have of re-obtaning and in- 

creasing that well -deserved fame 
which they formerly enjoyed* 

Their efficaciousnesa is evident 
from the (olio wing table of analysis; 
«rom which, ton, it will he seen that, 
in general con positi n, they closel. 
resemole those of the Kissingen Schoi 


bom and Sftlzschlirf Bonifacius, the 
chief difference being their supc iority 
in sulphuric ftcid.

This favourable composition led 
Professor Kionka of Jena to publish, 
in the Balneologische Zeitung, an ap- 
preciation, in which he states that 
the waters will be found efficacious 
as baths in treating scrofula, rickets, 
glandular swellings, deposits due to 
inflammation, chronic suppuration, 
female complaints and, especially, 
rheumatism. Taken as a medicine, 
their wealth of sodium chloride renders 
them very useful in cases of acute 
and chronic catarrh of the stomach 
and intestines, and excess of blood 
in the abdommal organs; and they 
may be drunk for bronchial catarrh &c. 
They are also applicable to enlarge- 
ment of the liver and pancreas as 
well as for reducing obesity. More- 
over, they will unquestionably be of 
the greatest service in curing gout ; 
for this disease has been shown by 
modern research to result from the 
liver quite as much as from the kid- 
neys, and the waters of the Gross- 

ktrzogin KaroUnenquclle posseas the 
admirable quaiity of acting favourably 
on boih these organs. 

IE is clear thai Eisenach, which has 
hitherto enjoyed a u c h f a vou r as a 
climHtic health-resort, will, frs a spa, 
obtain world - wide repdte. During 
tlie fifteen years from 1889 to 
1905 the annual number of its visi- 
tors, exclusive of tourists, rose from 
59,705 to 99,548, — high figures 
indeed, and due to the delightful 
climate of the town, to its interesting 
historical associations and to the 
charming walks in the immediate 
neighbourhood as well as in the sur- 
rounding Forest of Thuringia. 

Among then^arer trijM, the chief are :— 

An interesting excorsion to Annathal, 
40 minates from Frauenthor tbioogh the 
Marienthal, which may be done at the 
same time as the visit to the Wartborg. 
At the entrance to the Annathal, a pa^ 
winding to the left leads to the pictaree- 
qae LsadgrsfoBseblnekt (gorge). The 
narrowest part of the valley Is termed 
the Draehensehlaclity and is marked with 
a large "A*'. It is *^50 paces in length ; and 
the rooks on either side approacn so close 
to one another as to make it impossible 
for more than one person to pass at a time. 

On the Gdpelskuppe, a hiil near 
Kis»>nRoh, rises the Denkmalderdestsehea 
liursehensehsft (Monument to the Gher- 
niHn Studentrv) in commemoration of 
the efforts made by German arndenttt to- 
wards imperial union. It is a striking 
structare ornamented with nine eagles 
and bearing representations of Hermaxm 
the Deliverer, Charles the Great, Lather, 
DQrer, iioethe and Beethoven. 

A Bisnarek Colawn has been erected 
on the Watenherg.

This ancient town is rendered inter-

Luther* The house in which he was 
bom is No. 16 Luther St.: that in which 
he died stands opposite Audreaskirehe, 
and contains his death -bed and other 
relics. The principal tokens of the 
great reformer, however, will be found 
in the house of his nativity. Here 
are to be seen indulgences, paintings, 
translations &c., which recall the great 
conflict with Borne. A bronze statue 
of Luther, erected in commemoration 
of the 400 (It anniversary of his birth, 
represents the reformer rending the 
papal bulls.

OOSIiAB is a ..very old town situated 
on the Goae at the N. edge of the Ears. 
Said to have been founded in the lOtH 
oont, U became important on aooonnt 
of the silver -mines in the hills and 
especially in the Bammelsbergy at the 

foot of which it stands. Its ancient 
importance is still to be seen in the 
numerous quaint, old houses, the many 
towers, and the remnants of the old 
ramparts. In approaching the place from 
the station, we pass the <^d Paal's Toirer 
and the hotel which used to bear its name, 
but which is now called AehteraaBa. 
This hotel, to which a new wing has 
been added, stands in the loveliest 
quarter of the town, and is surrounded 
with a delightfal and shady park, three 
acres in extents Adjacent to the hotel 
is the *01d German Beer House*, built 
in the **Achtermann**. This renowned 
tower of the ancient fortifications was 
built in 1806; among its cosy rer^esses, 
the 'Bismarck- Ni'«chO* is very celebrated; 
while, on the first floor, there is an 
elegHut dining-room decorated with 
noteworthy frescoes. 

Opposite the tower is a fine Ohurch 
in Bomanesque style connected with the 
monastery ox H eawerk and erected in the 
12t]» century. Bahahof St., which passes 
between these two buildings, leads past 
Jaeobikireiie to the Marlt PI. This 
souare is embellished with a large and 
old fountain havinc two metal oasins, 
and presented, so Uie legend says, by 
his Satanic Ki^jesty. In the middle ot

freaooes and eome good wood - oarving. 
Close by is Fraakemberger Cloiiter. About 
S minnteg' walk to the S.K is Claattbor, 
and, some distance farther, the Ksiser- 
haasy the oldest secular bailding in 
Oermany. The original strncture was 
erected in 1060 and was the palace of 
eleven snecessive. emperors, the last of 
whom resided here till 1253. The edifice, 
which was severely damaged by fire 
in 1280, has been admirably restored. 
The place may be viewed from U— 1, 
and m>m 2 till dask. The bailding con- 
sists of the Saslbaa, with its extension 
added later, the private chapel of St« 
Vlrleh and the connecting corridor. The 
ajpper- floor of the Saalbau is adorned 
with frescoes: in the interior of the 
chapel is the toml> of flearj III. 

Opposite the building are the eques- 
trian statues ot Barbsrossa and Kaiser 
Wllhelm [. (Walter Schott). 

Sastwards of the Kaiserhaus stands 
the Domkapelle, which is the vestibule 
of the once fionous Cathedral erected 
in 1050 by Bmp. Henry 111. The main 
building was sold in 18&:0 for 1,100 dollars 
and pufled down. The 'Kapelle* has been 
restored; and its portal, with richly 
sculptured capital, witnesses to the former 
grandeur of the Duilding. The interior 
contains a number of interesting relics 
of the Cathedral, among them, the 
Krodo Altar of gilded bronze, the screen 
presented to fienr^ III. by Herzfeld 
Cloister, and a stained-glass window. 

In the S.E. of the town, some 10 mi- 
nutes* walk from the Domkapelle, are 
the Kurpark and the Zwiager: this 
latter is a broad tower in the old town 
wall: from it a good view is obtained. 
Passing along by the ramparts we come 
to St. AsBeahaaSy-a home for women 
founded in 1494. It possesses a chapel 
with painted timber ceiling &c. Con- 
tinuing in the same direction, a walk of 
about 10 minutes brings us to the old 
BTeitenthOT, one of the best-preserved 
gates in the town. Still keeping to the 
promenades, we reach Georgenbergy in 
the neighbourhood of the station, where 
the rums of an ancient cloister have 
been unearthed: the outline of the 
church, with its nave, aisles and five 
towers, is to be clearly seen.

HA&ZBUSG, to the N. of the Broekes, 
and at the entrance te the Bada«tkal» 
is a favourite summer-resort. It enjoys 
a fine situation and possesses a Kvrhavs 
which forms the gathering-point of the 
numerous visitors. The bath, Jallvskall, 
was formed in 1850. Its waters contain 
chlorates and sulphates of .sodium, po- 
tassium, magnesium &o^ with tnMtea of 
iron. The principal complaints treated are 
gout, rheumatism, scrofula, and catarrh 
of the bronchial tubes, stomach &c. 

There is also a spring, recentljjr dis- 
covered, which yields hot water of similar 
composition to the above, and which is 
used as a medicine for catarrh, piles, 
constipation, gout, obesity &c. 

The environs of Harzburg are very 
picturesque and interesting. A pleasant 
excursion is up the valley of the Badau, 
whose noisy babblings have given to it ita 
name (Bow). But the favourite trip is 
to Burgbergy to which there is a choioe 
of two paths, — one starting from Jnlius- 
hsll and the other from the 'Eichea' : 
there are also two carriage-roads. The 
mountain (1,656 feet) is crowned with 
ruins, some of which, the Krodohalley 
are said to be the remnants of an old 
heathen temple. Another was once the 
residence of the Bmperors (1181—1289): 
it was founded by Henry IV. and has been 
twice rebuilt. The spot affords a fine 
view, and is also interesting for its gran- 
ite stone in memory of Uhlaady and fnr

The tradition may perhaps have arisen 
from the *Broeken Spectre*, a well-known, 
thoagh rare, phenomenon, in which the 
shadow of the mountain is cast by the sun 
upon a bank of fog. The legend, it will be

mides and chlorides. 

EXCUBSIONS: From Hubartnsbad up- 
stream, to Bosstrappe* The route lies 
along the Bode as far as the first bridge 
above Hubertus Island. Tourists follow- 
ing the right bank must cross this bridge 
at Waldkater, and take the path through 
the preserves and across Bfilow Hdhe. 
Another route by which this height may 
be reached is across the bridge near 
the Bleehhfltle and up the hills, bearing 
then to the left. From Billow H5he, the 
road winds along the hills south-west- 
wards to Bosstrappe. This consists of 
precipitous rocks rising to a height of 
some 1,960 ft It derives its name from 
an enormous horseshoe, the hoof print 
of a legendary steed. 

Prom the Uosstrappe, following our 
way a few steps backwards, we come 
to the Sehorre, a sig-sag path on the 
left leading down again to the stream, 
at a spot which forms the entrance to 
the Bodekessel. This is a rugged de- 
pression in the vale of the Bode, built 
up of great granite blocks. Returning 
down Stream from the Sehurre, a walk 
of some 7 minutes brings us to Konigs- 
rnhr, where we oross the stream by the 
Jungfera Bridge and follow a shady 
path through the HIrseh grand to La 
fibres H5he« Here the route turns 
sharply to the left, and bends round to 

Hexentanaplats)* m platsaa above the 



fociisi at a iieight o^ \,M h., oommandihf 
a view of the Rosstrappe oppoiite, and 
perhaps even a more striking prospect 
than the latter. From the hotel, the cliffs 
fall preoipitously to the river below, 
whose murmnring is distinctly audible. 
Looking down the valley, we perceive 
Qaedlinbnrg and the quaint town of 
Halberstadt, while, with the help of a 
telescope placed at the disposal of gaests, 
the towers of Kagdebnrg cathedral come 
into view. Taken all in all, Hexentans- 
platB is one of the most delightful places 
to stop at in the whole of the Hars; 
while, apart from its own beauties, it is 
an admirable centre for some fine 

EXCUBSIONS, of which the favourite 
is along the beautiful road past Dan- 
baebshsiis and Pfell's DenkMsl to " 

bnrg (see above). 

From Hexentanaplati. we may return, 
viaWaldkater and the Aotien Brauerei, 
to Thale Station. 

<|1JEDJLINBVR« (POP.: 24.000. -> 
HOTELS: Bar; Buntes Lamm) is situated 
some three miles to the N.B. of the 
Ham Mts. It was founded by Henxj I., 
who, according to tradition, received 
the imperial crown at Finkenherd on 
the road to Sohloss PL: at the time, 
he was setting birdsnares, >- hence his 
surname ^he Fowler'* 

In the town, at Sehloss PL, is the 
house in which Klopstoek was born. 
(Memorial tablet). 

The Bathaus, in the Markt PL, is quaint 
and curious (14*1^ cent.). In front of it 
stands a figure of Bolandf indicating that 
the place was a free town, it having 
been a member of the Hanseatic League. 
Its walls, with thair towers and moat, 
still witness to its andent importance. 

In the girls' school^ there is a Muml- 
eipal Hnsenm containing collections of 
weapons, arms, and records, including a 
codex of the 'Saxon Spiegel' with glossary 
(15tb cent.^. The dymnaslum contains an 
ancient Library with a number of old 
MSS., among them another and evan 
more celebrated codex of the Saxon 
Spiegel 18tb cent.). 

Overlooking the town on the western 
side are the Sehloss &: the Abbey Chareb. 
Castellan in the court-yard (admission 
50 pf.). The castle possesses some inter- 
esting pictures, among them one of 
Aurora of Konlcsmark, the mistress of 
Avgnstas the Strong. The Abbey Chareb, 
with its two towers, was erected in its 
present form by Otto III. During some 
restorations, a small chapel wa^ dis- 
covered to the E. of the tomb of Henry 
the Fowler. In the crypt, which is de- 
oorated with rich and fantastic Romane- 
sque sculpturing, repose the remains of 
the founder and «his consort. In a romb, 
reached by a narrow stairway, there 
are several cotfins, including the sar- 
oophagns of Countess Aarora. 

<)uediint>urg is a good oen^ tmk 
hss railway connection with Thala and 
the whole of the lower Hars. 

HAIiBERSTADT (POP.: 48,000.— 
HOTE LS : eoldenes Boss ; Prlnee Bagens) 
lies in a fertile plain on the banks of 
the Holtemme^ It is one of the most 
central spots for reaching the Hars, 
having direct railway oonneotion with 
all the principal spots in this beauti- 
ful mountain group. The town itself 
possesses extensive commereial inter- 
ests and some important factories. It 
has preserved its medissval character 
to a remarkable degree; and its gabled 
houses give to it a quaint, old-world 
a|>p<»aranoe. In some eases the upper- 
most floor juts out to the extent of 
between three and four feet. One of 
the most interesting examples is to ba 
foand in the Sehahhofy a Renaissance 
building erected in 1679, and richly 
decorated with wood-carving: this house, 
as well as Tetzel's (l->20), is situated at 
the coiner of the Fisehmarkt. Close by, 
in the Holsnarkt, stands the Bathaas 
(14tb cent.). It is a Gothic building with 
Renaissance additions. To the S.W. 
stands an enormous figure of Boland; 
while, at th6 S.B. corner of the Markt, 
the Batskeller is situated. This fine 
timber structure, richly carved, dates 
from 1461. Indeed, the architecture in 
wood to be seen in Halberstadt is 
probably the finest in Burope. 

A little to the N. of the Bathaas rises 
the Hartlnikirehe (14 tb cent.) with fine 
towers : opposite its N. W. comer, a narrow 
Hlley leads on to the Dom PU, where the 
Cathedral stands. The original building 
was burned down in the 12th cent.; and 
the present edifice, begun a few years 
later, was not completed till the ISt^cent. 
Oonsequently, its architecture is some- 
what incongruous; but the western 
end of the nave is pure OgivaL The 
interior is interesting, and possesses 
a screen in late-Gothic style. On the 
Dom PI., there is a monument comme- 
morating the events of 1M70— 71: while, 
at the further end, stands the Chorch 
of oar Lady, the oldest building in ihm 
district. It is a Bomanesqne basilica^, 
commenced in the year 10o6, and pos* 
sessing four towers.

POTSDAIC, for more' than a century 
the residence of the royal family, is be- 
autifully situated on the Havel, and has 
been, nom earliest times, the seat of 
the goTemment of Brandenburg. It has 
become interesting through its con- 
nection with Frederick the Great, who 
erected here a large number of palaces 
and other buildings. The most interest- 
ing of these are the following, namely :~ 

Stadtsehloss, where Frederick the 
Great lived, and which contains a 
number of rooms all left as he used 
them. From the western side, a '^Golden 
Stair-case** leads to the main boildings. 
One of the most interesting rooms is 
the Msrble Ssloon, with magniilcent 
paintings by Vanloo, antique clocks &o. 
Before the Schloss stands a large lime- 
tree, where persons waited to present 
their petitions to the king. 

In the neighboarhood is the JauU 
rartea, adorned with bronse busts of 
York and BltLoher and several , other 
interesting persons, all by Ranch, and a 
bronse statue of Frederick William I 
near the parade ground on which he 
used to drill his grenadiers. 

Frledensfcirehe is a church in^earlv- 
Ohristian style. It possesses a dock- 
tower 180 feet high, and some beauti- 
ful Italian sculptures. We enter the 
ministers by a Bomanesqae portal in 

Ta-ootta and afterwards find our- 

I 7es in the Atrium, where several 

sculptures are to be seen, such as 

I aes of Hoses, Aaron and Bar(BaachX 

I . a com of Tbe BIsen Christ by Thor- 

dsen. To the right of the building is the 

Isnsolensiy a magnificent erection 
j different sorts of marble. In the 
i lotnre repose the remains of the 

peror Frederlek III. and his consort. 

1 former Princess ^yal of Bneland. 
'e them, there is a magnificent 

tomb, with a recumbent figure sculp* 
tured by Begas and forming one of his 
finest works: in the altar-niche, there 
is a Piet4 oy Rietsohel, with a sareo- 
phagus of two of Frederick's sons on 
either side: the whole is filled up with 
flowers and wreaths sent by various 
emperors and other personages. 

In the Park of Sanssoael there is 
the Great Foantstai« the water of which 
rises to a height of 190 feet; round the 
basin stand 8 marble figures, of which 
the Venus (Pigalle) is the most beautilul. 
Straight ahead, we ascend a broad flight 
of steps 66 ft. high, and broken by six 
terraces with fine beds of fiowers, hot- 
houses and the graves of Frederick the 
Great's dogs. The monarch himself also 
wished to be bur;ied here, that he might 
be truly *8ans souci*. We now reach the 

Palace of Sanssoueiy erected by 
Knobelsdorfi. It consists of only one 
story; and the rooms where the king 
lived and died are still in the same 
order as he left them. The most Inter- 
eeting apartments are:— 

The Boost of Yoltaire» with curious 
wood-carving and painted walls designed 
by Frederick to represent the character of 
the French wit, the peacock typifying his 
vanity, the ape his mimicry, the parrot his 
garrulity. The Librsr j is, of course, quite 
French, and curiously arranged. The Pie- 
tare Gallery contains several good paint- 
ings by van Dyck, Bembrandt» Ooinelius 
von Haarlem, Bubens &io.: the visitor 
should take care that it is shown, and 
not be put-off with the corridor where 
Watteau's pictures are hung. 

TheOraageryt in Florentine style with 
several good paintings & sculptures and, 
on the terrace, the statues of Ceres, 
Flora Ac. 

The New Pslaecy the summer residence 
of William II, is dosed to visitors from 
May till towards November. It contains 
aoo apartments, the Imperial iamily 
residing in the K. wing. The SheU 
Saloon IS richly decorated with precious 
stones and souvenirs brought back by 
William n from his travels. Furthermore, 
the palace contains a theatre, a Marble or 
Concert Saloon with magnificent painted 
ceilings &c. Near the Palace is the Haaao- 
leasifWith a marble statue of Queen Louise 
and the Temple of Friendship, built by 
Ghontard, in memory of the sister of Frede- 
rick the Great, Margravine of Bayreuth. 

The Ckarek of St. Nlekolss, to the N. 
of the above-mentioned Palace, is a domed 
and cubical building erected in 18B0 by 
SohinkeL It contains several fine frescoes 
of Christ with the Apostles (Sohinkel). 
'The Sermon on the Mount' (Kiss) Aco. 
Behind the chancel are stored -up the 
uniforms of the soldiers of the 'Alexan- 
der' and 'Frana* regiments, named after 
^e respective emperors. 

BXCUBSIONSt To Babelsberg, with 



a piotoreaaue oh&teau in Tador style 
(Sobinkel), lying on a sloping and grean 
hill whenoe a magnificent view ox the 
Hayel is obtained. The oh&tean con- 
tains the rooms of Emperor William L 
and Bmpress Augusta, all left un- 
touched. The place also calls up many 
reminiscences of Prince Bismarck, as 
well as of Frederick III. and his consort; 
while the whole illustrates strikingly 
the simplicity of the HohenxoUern 
house. In front of the building, there 
is a BruanendenkmaL built of stones 
from the Cathedral of Cologne. Behind 
the ch&teau, is the Lime Tree of ToUaire. 
There is also a seat with busts of 
generals who fell in the war of 1870.

and important manufacturing centre. 
The population, which, within this 
period, has nearly trebled, is engaged 
principally in the manufacture of loco- 
motives, cars and tools. The town is, 
however, also devoted to art, and

the Stdndehaus and the Hall of Art, 
The latter stands at the corner of Wil- 
helm St., and contains an exhibition of 
modern paintings, Cassel vying with 
Diisseldorf for the 3^ place among 
the art centres of Germany. 

The S.W. corner of Stande PI. is 
occupied by the Barracks, Here we 
turn to the left and, passing through 

Gr. Friedrich St, reach Wilhelms PL, 
where the Oberprdsidium stands. 
The large building close by is the Wit* 
helm's Gymnasium; from Wiihclm's 
PI., we take the Obere Konig St., the 
principal business street of the town. 
A few paces along it on the ri^ht- 
hand side is Mess PI., embellished 
with a bronze bust of Burgomaster 
Schomburg, A little further on, the 
street passes Opern PL, where, in 
front of the Opera House, stands a 
bronze statue of Louis Spohr, who, 
for 36 years, conducted the orchestra 
here. Leaving Friedrichs PL on the 
right, we proceed to Kdnig"s PL, 
a large circus containing the principal 
hotels and the Post Office. Following 
the tramway to Bed wig St. and turning 
to the right, we reach Martins PL 



century building in Gothic style, the 
choir of which contains some old 
monuments, such as, Philip the Ge- 
nerous with his Consort and that 
to Prince Philip of Hessen, 

Returning southward through Mittel- 
gasse to Stein weg, we reach the Natural 
History Museum, open Mon. and 
Thurs. from lO—l, and Thurs. and 
Sat. from 3—6. On the ground-floor 
and Ist floor are the natural history 
cabinets with a herbarium said to be 
the oldest in Germany (I6th cent.): 
the second story contains the £thno> 
logical collections. Adjoining it is the 
Military School and next to this 
stands the Museum Fridericianum. 
This latter was instituted by the Land- 
grave Frederick II. in 1769, and con- 
tains collections of coins, antediluvian 
relics and a few classical sculptures. 
Its Library, in which the Grin^ms 
laboured for 15 years, possesses 
170,000 vols, and 1,600 MSS., among 
the latter being many rarities. At the 
corner of Friedrichs PI. is the old 
Palace of the Electors: while in the 
centre of the square, which is very 
large and bounded on three sides by 
avenues of trees, stands the statue 
of the Landgrave Frederick II, made 
notorious by his having hired 12,000 
soldiers to the English to assist 
them in the American war of Inde- 

At the south-eastern end of the 
square is a handsome gate, called the 
"AueThor**diTid adorned bySiemering's 
bronze reliefs of the "Warrior's Fare- 
well and Return'*. It leads on to the 
Aue (meadow), a fine promenade with 
^rench landscape gardening and beau- 
tiful trees. It contains a fine Orange

WILHELMSHOHS, which may be 
reached in one hour on foot through 
an avenue of fine lime-trees, was 
formerly the summer residence of the 
Electors. It has a world-wide cele- 
brity on account oT its magnificent 
situation and lovely grounds. The 
castle itself is luxuriously appointed: 
the public are shown over it by the 
castellan on week-days, provided the 
Imperial family, which spends a part 
of the summer here every year, is 
not in residence. It is principally 
interesting as the place where Napo- 
leon III. was retained as prisoner of 

war in 1870. To the N.E. of it lie the 
hot-houses, in which, during the spring, 
a fine show of camelias is to be seen. 
Behind it is the Guard 'house and 
Grand Hotel Wilhelmshohe {formerly 
Schombardt), whence winding paths 
lead up to the new waterfall. Another 
dim by by the reservoir, brings us to 
the temple of Mercury. From here, we 
may take one of several paths through 
the woods to the Riesenschloss (Ok- 
togon), the highest point in the park 
and from the platform of which a 
splendid view may be enjoyed. 
On a high column here, rises a co-

The principal mineral constituents are 
bicarbonates of iron-protoxide, sodium, 
magnesium and calcium: there is also 
a certain quantity of sodium and po- 
tassium sulphates and a large propor- 

tion of free carbonic-acid gas. This 
last ingredient renders the waters effer- 
vescent and refreshing: the Helenen- 
quelle has a somewhat salty flavour; 
while the larger proportion of iron 
contained in the Georg Victorquelle 
gives it a slightly astringent character; 
but the taste is no-wise inky.

NAUHEIM SPA is situated in the 
Grand - Duchy of Hesse and is a 
stopping -place of expresses on the 
main-line from Frankfort on-the-Main 
to Hamburg. It lies midway between 
Giessen and Frankfort o. M. at the 
foot of the Johannisberg, an offshoot 
of the TaunuS) at an altitude 
474 ft, above sea -level, and is < 
of the most important spas on

Here may be found nearly every usi 
variety of mineralized water emplp 
in the treatment of disease; and i 
to its thermal springs, combined ^ 




the modern methods of treating heart- 
disease practised by its physicians, that 
the spa owes its rapidly growing fame. 
The climate, which corresponds in 
general to . that of Centra] Germany, 
is influenced in a specially agreeable 
manner by the proximity of the Taunus, 
which causes a refreshing coolness 
to make itself felt morning and evening. 
The average temperature from May !»* 
till. October lfl<i is 16.80 c. = 62,24® F. 
In the month af July it rises to 19** C. 
= 66.20 F. The average height of 
the barometer is 750 mm. The air, 
owing to the proximity of the thickly 
wooded Taunus range, is fresh and 
.pure and rich, in ozone by reason 

of the large graduation works (Gra- 

There are 5 drinking springs: the 
Kur and Karlsbrunnen (for use under 
treatment only) are mildly carbonated 
stimulating waters promoting intestinal 
circulation and secretion and relieving 
congestions of the abdominal organs; 
the Germaniabrunnen, Schwalheimer 
Brunnen, Ludwigsbrunnen and Lowen- 
quelle are not only medicinal but also 
excellent table waters. 

The springs which are used for 
bathing purposes are Nos XII, VII 
and XIV. The different kinds of 
baths are as follows; —

calcium salts as well as carbonic acid 
by the process of "graduation". 

Thermal Baths coming from the 
open thermal tanks where a portion 
of the carbonic acid gas evaporates, 
the wat6r being exposed to the air. 

Thermal Sprudel (Effervescing) 
Baths containmg much carbonic acid 
and coming from the covered tanks 
where almost the full temperature and 
all the carbonic acid of the Sprudel 
are preserved. 

Sprudel Baths, The water of the 
springs is led through conduits from 
the upper tube, direct to the bath 
without coming into contact with the 
outer air, so that it preserves its 
full amount of carbonic acid gas. 

Stream Baths. By means of a • 
special contrivance attached to the 
baths, it is possible to arrange for 
stream baths with continuous inflow 
and outflow of the water. They are of 
three kinds, namely, sprudel, thermal- 
sprudel, and thermal. 

All tiie baths can be strengthened 
at will by the addition of the excel- 
lent mother-lye which is extracted in 
Nauheim during the preparation 
the salt. 

Owing to this manifold variety 
is possible to prescribe baths sui 
exactly to the temporary mor 
condition, i. e. to tiie individual ne( 
of the patient.

The diseases for the cure of which 
Nauheim is celebrated are: — Dise-

type; the after-result of rheumatism; 
gout and all kinds of rheumatism; 
diseases of the peripheric and central 
nervous system; female complaints; 
disorders in the normal state of the 
blood, asthenia, chronic catarrh, con- 
gestion in thd abdominal organs,

The baths of Nauheim produce 
peculiarly stimulating effects on the 
thinnest ramifications of the nerves 
in the epidermis which acting on the 
whole nervous system beneficially in- 

fluence the whole body. The action 
of the heart, the respiration, the pres- 
sure of the blood, the whole circulation, 
the temperature of the bo'dy and^ 
consequently, the change of tissue 
can be regulated thereby. This 
stimulus enables the body to absorb 
and secrete diseased matter, excites 
it to generate a new healthy tissue, 
brings about a better assimilation of 
food, and invigorates the whole body 
including those parts of it which 
have been impaired by disease. The 
beat of the heart grows slower and 
stronger, the pulse grows fuller, 
ana the breathing more regular and 

Though Nauheim is pre-eminently 
a health resort, it is, nevertheless^ 
an extremely agreeable place to stay 
at. A fine orchestra plays thrice 
daily; concerts, fire-work displays and 
balls take place at frequent intervals; 
theatrical and operatic performances 
are given in the Kurhaus, which, with 
its broad terrace, is the centre Oi

the sum of 7,500,000 Marks for im- 
provements of all kinds. Six new 
bath houses are to be erected, four 
of which will be in readiness for the 
season 1908. Two central admi- 
nistrative buildings, a heat and electric

FRANKFORT is a celebrated old 
city which, as one of the leading 

members of fhe Hanseatic League, 
maintained its independence until 
after the war of 1866. It then became 
incorporated with Prussia, but retained 
its importance as one of the chief 
money-markets of the world, its Stock 
Exchange being among the principal 
bourses in Germany. The city is 
also t busy commercial and industrial 
centre, with a large trade, in wines, 
soaps &c. Its literary and historic 
associations will be gathered from 
the many monuments and ancient 
edifices embellishing the streets and 
squares of the city, which is divided 
into the Altstadt and the Ncustadt. 
The former consists largely of narrow 
alleys and courts: many of the build-

ings are gabled, and have the old 
projecting floors such as are to be 
seen in Chester, Halberstadt and t)ther 
old European towns. The Ncustadt 
is the centre of the money-market, 
and possesses a large number of 
fashionable shops, cafes &c. 

The Railway Station lies in the 
S.W. of the town: proceeding from 
it eastwards through Kaiser St., we 
reach Rossmarkt, embellished with a 
r lumental group of Gutenberg, Fust 
s Schoffer (see Mayence). To the N. 
c on Goethe PI. stands a handsome 
r ument of Germany's greatest poet, 
c in bronze, in 1844, from designs 
\ >chwanthaler. Beyond the Goethe 
I iument rises the tiew Bourse, a 
r ;niticent building, filling the whole 
I "-e named Borsen PI, It was built 

by Bumitz and Sommer in 1879 and 
possesses a splendid Renaissance hall, 
which may be seen between 12 and ^ 
o'clock. Returning southwards through 
Schiller St, we come to the SchilUf 
Monument, occupying a square which 
bears the dramatist's name. Close by 
is Katharinenkirche (St. Catharine^ 
Church) and, a little beyond it, at th9 
corner of the Zeil, is Liebfrauen St., 
which leads by the Church of Our Lady, 
past the Old Bourse, to St, PauV^ 
Church (where Parliament so oftlfi 
held its sittings), and, beyond it, to 
the Romer or old Rathaus (1405)- 
This last has now been incorporated 
in a new triple group of buildings 
known under the name of the 

Neue Rathaus. In the modifications) 
no important part of the old hiftgric 


Romer has suffered change. The new 
structures, designed by v. Hoven and 
Neher in Gothic style, form a worthy 
extension of the old edifice. 

Approaching the buildings from 
Paul's PI., we have before us the 
Fesisaalbau, containing, as is usual 
in Germany, the Ratskcller, which in 
Frankfort is famous for its RUdes- 
heimer wines. The entrance is orna- 
mented with suitable carvings. Above 
the 'cellar' is the Fesisaal itself, a 
magnificent hall in which no expense 
has been spared. To the same suite 
of rooms belongs the celebrated Wahl- 
zimmer der Kurftirsien, where the 
Emperors were formerly elected, and 

a fine room, called the Kaisersaal, 
embellished with portraits of the 
Geiman Emperors from Charlemagne 
to Francis II.: in the room stands a 
marble statue ottheEfttperor Williaml. 

Adjoining the Festsaalbau is the 
Sudban with two tall towers dubbed 
respectively **Long Franz" and "Little 
Cohen". The former is decorated with 
an early-Renaissance window and a 
couple of mosaics. The other tower 
bears, as embellishments, four allegoric 
figures. A bridge joins the Siidbau to 
the Nordbau in which the financial 
administration of the city is located.

On Romerberg, close by, there is 
a fountain, and, beyond, the Church 
of Si, Nicholas, A little further south- 
wards is the so-called Saalhof, built 
in 1717 on what is probably the spot 
where Charlemagne's palace stood. 
Hard by is the Eiserne Sieg, a sus- 
pension bridge for foot-passengers, 
built by Schmick in 1869. Passing 
along the bank of the river eastwards, 

we obtain a view of the old bridge con- 
structed in 1342: taking the third turn- 
ing to the left, we reach the Cathedral, 
historically the most interesting edifice 
in the city. It was in this building that 
the kings and emperors of the old 
German Empire were crowned. The 
present building was erected, at the 
opening of the 13*h cent , on the spot 
where had stood the Church of St. 
Salvaior, founded by Ludwig the 
Pious. It is a cruciform Gothic building 
with a handsome spire and three 
turrets. The chimes are very fine, the 
largest of the ten bells having been 
cast from French cannon and requiring 
16 men to ring it. The interior con-

erected in 1852 in Moorish style. 
Schiitzen St. leads down to Schone 
Aussichi on the river bank : turning to 
the left, we reach the Obtrmainhrucke, 
at the head of which stands a marble 
bust of Lessing and, behind it, the city 
Library. This latter, an edifice built 
in 1S20, contains about 200,000 
volumes. In the vestibule, there is a 
marble statue of Goethe by Marches! 
(1838) and a large number of busts. 
(Admission Mon. and Fri. 9—1, 
Wed. 3—5). 

From here, a walk may be taken 
along the old ramparts, which have 
been laid-out in grounds. The third 
turning to the right, Pfingstweid St., 
leads to the Schutzenbruunen Denk" 
mat, designed and executed by 
Eckhardt in 1887. Beyond it are the 
Zoological Gardens, from the tower 
of which a fine view is obtained. The 
entrance fee to the gardens is 1 mk., 
and 50 pf. extra to the Aquarium. 

Continuing along the ramparts, we 
come to Friedberger Thor, where there 
is a monument to the Hessian soldiers 
who fell at the spot in 1792. Opposite 
is "Beihmann's Museum*' containing

Here we may leave the ramparts by 
passing through the Friedberger Thor 
and turning to the right along Bleich St. 
A walk of a few minutes brings us to 
Si. Peter's, in whose old churchyard 
there stands a monument to the Franco- 
Prussian War. It is a bronze group by 
~ hardt. A few paces further is 
ited the Senchenbergische Siift,

last remnant of the old ramparts, 
whole situation of this tower is very 

beautiful. Beyond it, in the ramparts, 
is the Borne Denkmal, and, a few paces 
further, Mozart PI. At the next corner 
is Opern PI., where the magnificent 
Opera House, one of the handsomest 
buildings of its kind in the whole 
country, is situated: it was et^ected, 
in 1873—1880, from the designs of 
the Berliner architect Lucae. From 
this square two electric tramways run 
to the Palm Garden (tickets 1 Mk.), 
one passing through Bockenheimer 
I^andstr. to the front entrance and the 
other through Feldbergstr. to the back 

The grounds are beautifully laid-out 
and, in the houses, there are some 
fine specimens of palms and other 


tropical plants. The place is open 
the whole day; and concerts are given 
every afternoon and evening. To 
the S. of the gardens, in Beethoven 
St., there is a panorama (tickets 
I Mk.). 
Other buildings of interest are: — 
The house in which Goethe was 
born. It stands a little to the S.E. 
of Rossmarkt, at 23 Grosser Hirsch- 
graben: the building, bought by the 
'Freie deutsche HochstifV, has been 
restored, as far as ' possible, to the 
condition in which it was during 
Goethe's youth. At the end of 
Hirscbgraben is the Mini, and, close 
by, the Bank; while, crossing the 
Untere Mainbriicke, and turning to 
the right along the river bank, 
we reach SiadeVs Art Instiiute, 
This last was founded, in the 18th 
century, by a citizen of Frankfort, 

Job. Fr. St&del. It possesses a good 
collection of pictures by old masters 
of the Dutch and German schools, 
a few specimens of the Italian and 
Spanish schools and a large number 
of copper-plate engravings. 

Through the centre of the city, 
from Schiller's monument, runs the

Frankfort: it is a broad road, which, 
with its continuation, the Neue Zeil, 
ends at the Zoologischer Garten, in

Patients ot all kinds, except those 
suffering from mental derangement or

particular attention is paid to the treat- 
ment of maladies of the stomach and 
intestines, together with the resulting 
disturbances of the nutritive system, 
obesity, gout, anesmia, affections of the 
heart and kidneys. 

Dr. Pariser's writings on 'Diet for 
stomach Complaints'* &o. enjoy a wide 
repute. Const quently. one may be sure 
of oare'ul dietetic and individual treat- 
ment in the establishment 

Situated in an elevated spot at th< 
foot of the Upper Taunus Mts., thii 
bath is one of the most celebrate( 
in Europe. It lies only about 10 mile: 
from Frankfort o/M., and is th< 
resort of, thousands of English am 
Americans of good family in searcL 
of health or pleasure. 


The 8pa is beautifully located among 
well -wooded mountains, from which 
osone*laden breezes waft incessantly 
the scent of pines and firs. It pos- 
sesses many fine buildings, of 
which the most striking is the great 
*'Kurhaus". This edifice, open all 
the year round, has a splendid theatre 
and concert room, together with one 
of the best permanent orchestras in 

The Castle, standing on the highest 
(north-western) elevation of the slope, 
and partly re-built in 1680, commands 
a magnificent view of the Taunus. 
There is, of course, an English Church 
and also a celebrated Russian Chapel. 
Of monuments, those to the emperor 
and the empress Frederick and that 
to Hdlderlin are worth seeing; so, too, 
are the large bronze statue of Wilhelm I., 
and the Landgrafen-Denkmal erected 

in 1906 near the Elisabeli) spring. 
In the splendid park, extending over 
more than 300 acres, stands the 
magnificent Kaiser Wilhclm's Bad, 
where, besides all other kinds of baths, 
the celebrated natural carbonic - add 
baths are to be had. The springs are 
ten in number, among them ''Elisa- 
beth", "Kaiser" and •'Ludwig" (all 
aperient), and ''SUhl** and ^'Louisen*' 
tonic. One of the springs is similar 
in its effects the Carlsbad waters. The 
waters have a temperature of about 
60^, and -are always clear and spark- 
ling. The chief bathing springs are 
the ''Soolsprudel" and ^^Landgrafen- 
Brunnen"; the latter is also used for 

The principal mineral ingredients of 
the Homburg Springs are: — Chlorides 
of Sodium, Potassium, Lithium and 
Magnesium; and Iodide, Bromide and 



Riechelmann's Savoy Hotelo 


Carbonate of Magnesium, the tonic 
springs containing a)so iron. — The 
Homburg springs possess excellent 
curative effects in cases of Catarrh 
of the Stomach, Chronic Constipation, 
Piles, Complaints of the Liver, Catarrh 
of the Biliary Ducts, Obesity, Diabetes 
ftc. Considerable success has also 
been obtamed in the treatment of 
diseases of the heart, and also of 
complaints peculiar to women. 

The **Kaiser WUhelm Bath" is a 
new building, containing an mhala- 
I room and fitted with all modern 
an^ements for every description of 
rapeutic bathing. Besides this, there 
in the middle of the town, a Bath 
jse (Kurhaus-Bad). 
For those seeking recreation merely, 
re are fine golf-links and tennis- 
unds; while the neighbourhood 
rs to pedestrians some tempting 

excursioi^s. One of the finest is to 
the Saalburg on the saddle of the 
Taunus, with the remains of an 
old Roman Castle and a charming 
view. Within the Saalburg is the 
^^Imperial Limes Museum** for Roman 
antiquities. The foundation stone was 
laid on Oct 11th 1900, by the 
German Emperor. The Taunus can 
now be reached in a few minutes by 
using the electric railway, opened 
in 1900. 

The environs of Homburg are very 
beautiful, and offer opportunities for 
most delightful picnics. Two of the 
most charming spots are Hardtwald 
and WildparK the latter filled with 
numbers of fallow-deer maintained 
at public expense and remarkable for 
their tameness.

of the most oharming parts of the Tannns 
Banff e. The climate is ezoeptionally 
n^d; and its three springs, which have 
been known for centuries, are chaly- 
beate in oharacter. The waters of the 
Kronthal Bronnen are despatched in 
great quantities, the annual yield being 
over 60,000,000 litres. 

They have proved themselves to be a 
most admirable remedy for disturbances 
of the nutritive system, for nervous 
complaints and as a preventive in 
epidemics of cholera, typhus &o.

K5NIGST£IN is a hamlet much fre- 
quented by tourists and others, on ac- 
count of its romantic and picturesque 
situation on the Taunus, some 1,200 ft. 
above the sea-level. It is supplied with 
electric light and consists largely of 
pretty villas, including a chateau of the 
Duke of Luxembourg. To the west of 
the town, and crowning a high and 
precipitous cliff, lie the extensive ruins 
of the old Castle, formerly the fortress 
of KOnigstein. Half an hour's walk to 
the north, there is another old ruin 
overlooking the little village of the 
same name. The place contains a hand- 
some new institute for the reception 
of patients suffering from pulmonary 

From the Castle ruins, a delightful 
woedland path leads back to Kron- 
berg; while, from Konigstein, a number 
of charming excursions may be under- 
taken, the hest being to the belvedere, 
at Hartenberg (20 minutes); to the 
pretty dale named Bill thai (25 min.); 
a more distant tour (2 hours) is the 
climb to the top of Great Feldberg, 
the highest point in the Taunus (2,650 
feet) from which the view obtained 
in fine weather is extensive and beau-

WIESBADEN is admittedly the 

queen of Continental spas. It is a 

beautiful town lying in a sheltered 

valley on the southern slopes of the 

Taunus Range. The surrounding hills, 

along the spurs of which it creeps 

to within an hour's distance of the 

Rhine, are densely wooded, and com- 

niofely protect the town from the bleak 

ds of the N. and E. The climate 

consequently so mild that even 

edible chestnut, the almond, the 

;nolia and similar trees flourish in 

open air. The mean temperature, 

ummer, is just over 18®C.; while, 

/inter, it seldom fails below 3^, the 

lest month being January, with a 

.n temperature of 2^ C. Indeed, 

the number of days during the year 
upon which outdoor exercise may be 
taken is very large; and, even in 
winter, one can commonly sit out of 
doors in the open air. 

In order to maintain a high 
standard of health, Wiesbaden has 
been kept a purely residential town 
and spa, with no sort of industry 
or manufacture and no smoke nor 
soot. A high -pressure water-supply 
provides pure crystal -clear water in 
ample volume throughout the town. 
The streets are scrupulously clean and 
are continually watered with great care ; 
while a thorough system of disinfection 
is regularly carried out As a conse- 
quence, the mortality — always a very

The town is filled with attractions; 
and a view of the place shows, at 
a glance, what a large number of 
handsome edifices it contains. 

As at all great spas, the Pavilion 
(Kurhaus) forms the central point of 
interest in Wiesbaden. It is a splendid 
structure occupying the site of a 
famous predecessor erected by the 
Duke of Nassau, and, seen across 
the Flower Garden with its fountain I 

and bordering avenue of grand trees, 
forms one of the most beautiftil sights 
of the town. The exit at the back of 
the building opens on-to the Kurpark, 
where the band-stand is situated and 
where there is a monument to Gustav 
Freytag. Here, too, in the middle of 
the lake, the great fountain springs 
aloft to a height of about 100 feet. 
The front of the building looked across 
to Kaiser Friedrichs PI. 

To the N. of the Kur grounds are 
situated a Branch Post Office and the

The Wiesbaden Springs have been 
known from Roman times. They have 
a high temperature (69^ 0.) and contain 
principally common salt, with a certain 
amount of chlorides of calcium, potas- 
sium, lithium &0.: the proportion of 
protoxide of iron is very small; and 
the waters are principally of value as 
thermal saline springs. The number of 
thermal baths is about 900, the water 

for which is supplied by 20 springs; 
BO that no fewer than 2,600 persons can 
bathe daily. The complaints treated 
are chiefly rheumatism, soat, neuralgia, 
paralysis, skin-diseases «e. 

The waters are drunk mostly at 
the Kotfhbmnaesy dnriny the earlier 
hours of the day. Another drinking 
fountain is the Wllhelsisbrsiiaeay prettily 
situated in the {^rounds alongside Wil-

helm St. During bad weatber, the waters 
trova this sprirg may be taken in the 
Neue Colonnaden. The drinking of the 
waters is of great benefit in complaints 
affecting the nose, the bronchial tubes 
and the other respiratory organs: they 
are also of great assistance in cases of 
dyspepsia, catarrh of the stomach and 
intestines, gout and corpulence. 

As an adjunct to the waters, grapes 
are employed in vast quantity: apart 
from the Bhenish fruit, grapes are im- 
ported from Meran and Italv, the yearly 
consumption being about 20^000 pounds. 
The grapes are eitner eaten, or the juice 
is pressed out and druttk, the effect of 
the treatment being to stimulate the 
various secretive organs of the body.

spas of the district, lies 778 feet 
above the Rhine on the north-west 
slopes of, the Taunus Mountains and 
mainly in a side valley of the Aare. 
Through this valley flows the Schwal- 
bach, whence the resort has obtained 
its name, the prefix "Langen" having 
been taken from the straggling form 
the village and added for the sake 

The ancient part of the place stands

Berg, with the Catholic Church, the 
Kursaal and the English Church, 
on the slopes above, and the Wein-

Through these valleys there flow 
streams, which, by erosion, have, in 
parts, almost laid bear the slate rock 
beneath. In such cases the subterranean 
waters with which the rock is saturated 
find their way to the surface. 

Most of the springs, and especially 
the Stahlbrunnen and Weinbrunnen,

character owing to the presence, in 
great quantity, of carbonic acid.

I mentioned are exported in bottles, and 

they are the only springs having Pump- 

Rooms. Both these and the remaining 

springs are of great value for bathing 

purposes ; while bf at least equal value 

with the waters are the famous and 
1^, vast peat- beds found in the district 

p and remarkable, for the quantity of 

^ salts which the mineral springs have 

F been depositing in them for ages. 


From the aforesaid details it becomes 

dear that, the chalybeate waters being 

easily assimilated, their effeot is to im- 
prove the blood, strengthen the nerves, 

morease the appetite and assist digestion. 
r external effect is to remove scurfy and 

I homy matters from the epidermis, as well 

P." as to cleanse the ^ores and increase the 

^ activity of the skin. Moreover,- the car - 

i': bonic-acid gas is of the greatest service 

I in strengthening the nerves and regn- 

■ lating the activity of the heart; while 

the great variety of springs renders it 

possible to adapt the baths to diseases 

of the most differingohara ter. 

PEAT- BATHS. — Here the pressure 

of weight, the various and peculiar salts, 

and, above all, the olmic acid are very 

effective in stimulating the activity of the 

skin, soothing the nervous system, aiding 

metabolism and resorbing discharges. 

INDICATIONS. — The principal ail- 
ments treated are:— clorosis, ansBmia, 

catarrh of the stomach, dyspepsia, dis- 
eases of the kidneys and bladder, malaria, 

Basedow's - disease ; nervous debility, 

hysteria, paralysis, rheumatism, gout, 

and all kinds of female complaints. 

TBEATHBNT. — In order to deal ef- 
fectively with these illnesses, the various 

Bath-houses, Sanatoriums &c. are fitted 

up with every conceivable therapeutic 

appliance which may aid in the treatment. 
Moreover, the well-kept paths in the 

lovely vicinity of the spa are carefully 

graduated to adapt them to the various 

gatients and to assist in the cure of 
eart- disease. 
BNTEBTAINMENTS. — The place con- 
tains a magnificent Pavilion where all 
sorts of entertainments are arranged. 
Open-air concerts are given at thePamp- 
rooms; and there is plenty of opportunity 
for lawn -tennis, fishing Ike; while the 
character of the environs ia such as to 

render picnics and excursions very

slopes of the Taunus Range at an ele- 
vation of nearly 1,000 feet: while the 
lovely valley in whioh it lies is sur- 
rounded by tree-olad hills rising to a 
height of 2,000 feet. The climate is very 
invigorating and refreshing; and osa is 
made of whey as an adjunct to tLie 
thermal baths, whose temperature variea 
between 2t^ and Q2fi G. The waters rtb 
used either at their natural temperature 
or artificially watmed. The analysis 
made by Fresenina in 1888 gives ihe 
following results: — calcium sulpliate 
0.018, carbonate of lithium 0.0026, sodium 
carbonate 0.002, sodium chloride 0,27 
with a large proportion of free carbonic 

The waters of the Setalangea quelle and 
Marlen quelle are also used for drinking 

The above methods of treatment, com- 
bined with the bracing character of the 
atmosphere, are exceedingly bene^eial 
in cases of nervous affections, female 
complaints, skin - diseases, gout and 
rheumatism, and also for convalescents 
and aged persons.

The city of HANOVER, a favourite 
resort of Anglo-Saxons, is the capital 
of the province of the same name, 
the latter having ceased to be a king- 
dom in 1866, when it became, by 
conquest, a part of Prussia. 

It is, for many reasons, a great fa- 
vourite among foreigners. Bordered 
to the north and east by extensive 
woods, to the west by Herrenhausen 
Park and to the south by the lovely 
grounds of the Maschpark, the town la 
one of the healthiest and pleasantest 
in Europe. The roads are paved 
with asphalt; and many of them are 

== HANOVER. = 





provided with special wooden tracks 
rendering it a perfect Eldorado for 
cyclists. Taxation is low and living 
cheap. Moreover , fine museums, 
libraries, colleges of science, the con- 
servatory of music and other edu- 
cational institutes of the town make 
it a leading place of residence for 
young people, particularly as the 
German spoken here is almost un- 
rivalled for purity. 

The Society for Promoting the In- 
terests of Foreign Visitors (Verein fur 
Fremdenverkehr) gladly furnishes in- 
formation and guide gratis. 

The Railway Station is situated in 
the centre of the town. In front of it 
is a bronze statue of Ernst August; 
close by stands the Post & Telegraph 

Office; while opposite the station, at 
No. 5 Ernst August PL, are the offices 
of the Society for Promoting the 
Interests of Visitors, where verbal or 
written information may be obtained 
gratis, (open on weekdays 10 — 1 and 
3 — 5 o'clock). Bahnhof St. leads into 
Georg St., the principal street and 
promenade of the town. 

At the comer is the favourite CM 
Kropcke, designed by Goetze and 
larged by Lorenz. From the col 
house, with its beautiful garden, 
admirable view of the bustling 
animated George St. & Theaterp 
is obtained. 

Overtopping the other edifices 
the vicinity, there rises here 


Court Theatre (Hof-Theater), em- 
bellished with statues of Sophocles, 
Terence, Goldoni, Moliere, Shakspere, 
Calderon, Lessing« Goethe, Schiller, 
Mozart, Beethoven and Weber. The 
building contains an auditorium, de- 
corated with beautiful symbolic fres- 
coes and arabesques, and capable of 
accommodating 1,650 persons. 

In front of this edifice is a monu- 
ment to Marschner, the composer 
and conductor. The musician is re- 
presented leaning upon the conductor's 
lectern as though listening to the music 
as it issues from the building within 
whose walls he so long laboured. 
Here, too, are a marble monument 
to Siromeyer, the surgeon, and a 

bronze statue to the famous techno- 
logist Karmarsch, for many years 
Director of the Polytechnic Academy. 
On the W. side of the Platz is So- 
phien St., where the 

Kunstlerhaus is situated. It is a 
handsome structure in Romanesque 
style, erected in 1855 by Geheimpr 
Regierungsrat Hase and possessing 
a fa9ade ornamented with statues 
of Diirer, Leibniz, Peter Vischer and 
A. V. Humboldt, alternately represent- 
ing art and science. The granite 
lions flanking the steps are copies 
of the ancient Egyptian work in the 
Capitol at Rome. In the Kiinstler- 
haus are held the annual exhibitions 
of the Kunstverein. 







At the end of Sophien St is 

the imposing Provincial -Sidndehaus 

(Council House) in Italian Renaissance 

style built by Baurat Wallbrecht, 

Qose by, in Prinzen St., the Vater- 

Iftndische Museum. It contains a 

fine collection of uniforms and 

mementos of the past life of the 

Hanoverian peasantry and citizens. 

Not far from here are Georgsplatz, 

larkable for a statue of Schiller, 

\ the following buildings: — 

loverian Bank, Hall of Indus- 

il Art, Reichsbank and the High 


ust beyond is Aegidicn-Thor PI, 

Marien St., to the left, is the 

autiful Gartenkirche, a white sand- 

"oe building, with an interesting 

churchyard containing the remains of 
Charlotte Kestner (Werther's Lotte), 
and Caroline Herschel, sister of the 
celebrated astronomer. There is also 
a curious grave to be seen here: the 
tombstone bears an inscription for- 
bidding the opening of the grave. 
Oddly enough, under this very 
stone, a seed became lodged which, 
sprouting, has burst open the tomb, 
and tilted the enormous stone which 
sealed it. 

Returning across Aej^idien-Tor PI., 
we soon reach Aegidienkirche, a 
14th century building with a Renais- 
sance tower added in the 18 th cent 
After the demolition of the original 
edifice, a Gothic structure was erected 
having a nave and two aisles, the 


whole of which was completely re- 
modelled by Laves. 

Opposite the cliurch stands the 
ancient "Justiz Kanzlei" — now a 
private residence: it is a Gothic 
building with a notable brickwork 
gable in the front. 

Passing through Markt St., we 
reach the Marklkirche, the oldest 
church in Hanover, it being mentioned 
as early as 1238. The g[ass in the 
choir dates from the 14th cent: 
the rest of the windows are beau- 
tiful, modern work; while the interior, 
restored in 1850, is decorated with 
paintings by Schaper. 

The MarM PI, is embellished with 
a monument to Luther and with a 

statue of Ernest the Confessor, Duke 
of Brunswick & Liineburg, and one 
of his wife, Elisabeth. 

Close by is the Old Rathaus, com- 
menced in 1439, but restored and 
enlarged at later periods. 

At No. 10 Schmiede St., Leibniz 
once lived: the house, which is a 
beautiful example of German Renais- 
sance architecture, is now occupied 
by the Industrial Art Museum, 

From the Marktkirche westwards, 
through Kramer St., one reaches 
Holzmarkt, with fine fountain. Here, 
too, rises the Residenz Schloss in 
Leinstrasse, a 1 7th century building, 
with a somewhat plain facade towards 
the Friederiken PI.; though the

"Tempel" fa9ade, added in 1817 by 
Laves, produces an imposing effect. 
The interior is decorated with ad- 
mirable frescoes by Jakobs and plastic 
works by Bendel. 

Between the principal sentry-box 
and the main porch stands the Schloss- 
kirche, a remnant of the Minorite 
Cloisters. The exterior is uninteresting ; 
but the decorations of the interior 
are very pretty, and include a not- 
able altar-piece by Lucas Kranach 
and a fresco of the "Ascent of 
Christ" by Oesterley. In the crypt 
(1667) repose the remains of numer- 
ous monarchs, including King George I. 
of England. 

Close by are the Leine Water 
Works, an imposing building sumpt- 

uously decorated, and faced by a 
beautiful fountain. 

Opposite the Schloss is the Altes 
Palais in which were born Queen 
Louise *the Good' of Prussia and her 
sister. Queen Friederike of Hanover. 

At the corner of Friedrich St. is 
the new Rathaus, once the palace 
of George V.: beyond it stands the 
School of Industrial Art. 

In the beautifully laid-out gror— -*- 
across the road rises the Kes 
Museum, built from Manchot^s 
signs in 1889. The inception 
this famous institute is due to i

Museum, a fine structure in Italian 
Renaissance style, crowned by a 
fine cupola. The entrance to the 
Art Collections is on the left side, 
and that to the Natural History Col- 
lections on the right. The joint 
Collections of Brunswick and LQne- 
burg (Guelph Museum and Cumber- 
land Gallery) have been transferred 
to this museum. To the right of 
the entrance-hall are the Pre-historic 
and Ethnological departments. In the 
first two halls the pre -historic dis- 
coveries are exhibited. A splendid 
marble stair -case leads to the prin- 
cipal storey. Halls 25, 26, 27 con- 
tain sculptures of old and modern 
masters, remarkable antique originals. 
Halls 28—33: Relics of the Middle- 
Ages, Vessels, Glasses, Flags &c. 
Halls 37—39: Palaeontological, Con- 
chological. Botanical Collections &c 
— The upper storey contains a 
magnificent Vaulted Hall; sixteen 
marble columns support the dome. 
The windows and balcony command 
-" extensive view of the pretty 
lunds of the Masch Park, of the 
m and distant mountains. — 
lis 40—48 (Hall 45 Friedrich 
lulbach Hall) and rooms 21—25,

Kranach, van Dyck, Rubens, Ruysdael, 
Bordone, Guido Reni, PfUma Vecchio 
&c.). Halls 49—57 contain a fine 
^Zoological Collection. — The museum 
is open free on weekdays from 
10—3, and on Sundays from 11—2 

Westwards lies Waterloo PL, with 
a column erected, in 1826, to the 
Hanoverians who fell at the battle 
of Waterloo: the column, which was 
designed by Laves, is surmounted 
by a copper figure of Victory (Hengst) 
and affords a good view of the 
town. The Plaiz is one of the 
drill -grounds for the military; and, 
adjoining the barracks, there stands 
the Armoury, containing the flags 
of the Hanoverian army. Opposite 
is the Polizei'Prdsidium, an imposing 
building. Not far distant is a Statue 
of Count Alten, the general who 
took part in the Peninsular War and 
at Waterloo. Hard by, there is a 
bust of Leibniz, a work executed 
by Hewetson, the Irishman. Here, 
too, are the Royal Archives and 
Library, and the Oberprdsidium, 
Through Archiv St., turn to the left, 
and on the right is the Neustddter 
Kirche, where the remains of Leibniz, 
the philosopher, are interred: it is 
a Renaissance structure containing a 
16th cent communion cup and other 
interesting objects. At the N. end of 
the street is the handsome Synagogue, 
a Moresque edifice designed by Oppler 
and situated in the middle of the old 
town with its quaint and crooked 
streets. The newer town is hand- 
somely built, with broad roads and 
fine modem edifices. 

Working westwards, we reach 

General - Offleo of tbo Hamburg - American Lino: 18 Georg StrooL 


Goethe ' PL, where stands a hand- 

Garrison Church in Romanesque 
style. In the north-west of the 
town begins Herrenhausen Allee 
on the right hand of which rises 
the Welfenschloss , an imposing 
Romanesque building now used as 
a Polytechnic School. In front of 
the building is a beautiful prancing 
stallion, called the Saxon Horse, 
Behind the palace is the Welfen 
Garden, which is very prettily laid- 
out. To .the left of the avenue 
are the pretty grounds known as 
Georgen Garden, and, at the end, 
is situated 

The Schloss in Herrenhausen, once 
the residence of the kings of Hanover. 
It contains numerous portraits and 
other interesting memorials of the 
Guelph family. 

Southwards of the Schloss lies the 
French Garden, in Lewis XIV. style, 
with an open-air theatre and numerous 
statues and fountains. These last play 
on Sun. & Wed. from 4 — 6 p. m. (May 
to Aug.), and 3 — 5 p. m. (Sept.): the 
finest of them rises to the remark- 
able height of 67 "2 metres, an ele- 
vation hitherto unattained by any 
other fountain. 

Not far from the fountain is situated 
the statue of the Eleciress Sophia, 
which marks the spot where she died. 
The French Garden received its present 
form in 1666 from designs by Le Notre, 
the famous Matire des Jar dins 
Royaux under Lewis XIV. Conse- 
quently, it is, after the parks of 
Versailles and Schonbrunn, the most 
remarkable of its kind. The Berg- 
garten, opposite the Castle, is a 
tastefully laid -out spot of great in- 
terest both to connoisseurs and to 
the uninitiated. In spring, a certain 
part of it, called "Paradise", is re- 
markable for its vast and varied 
plantations of rhododendron and 
azalea. In the orangeries and hot- 
houses there are numerous rare and 
beautiful plants, including a large 

variety of orchids and a fine victoria 
regia. But the most famous place 
is the palm-house with a wealth of 
tropical plants of all kinds. A walk, 
bordered by tall old lime-trees, leads 
to the Mausoleum, which contains 
the beautiful recumbent marble figures 
of King Ernest Augustus and his con- 
sort Queen Friederika, — master- 
pieces by Rauch. 

Not only Herrenhausen, but also 
the other environs of Hanover, are 
exceedingly pretty. The favourite 
walk is to the Eilenriede, a forest 
(660 ha.) which stretches right up to 
the eastern edge of the town and 
justly forms the pride of the inhabi- 
tants. Near the entrance at the end 
of Konig St., is the handsome Krieger- 
denkmal (monument to warriors killed 
in the Franco - Prussian war of 
1870). In front of the pedestal and 
flanked on either side by allegorical 
lions stands the weeping figure of 
Hanovera. It is surmounted by an 
imposing statue of *'Germania'* hold- 
ing aloft the palm of peace and 
accompanied by two genii. Close by 
is the "Neue Haus", an elegani 
restaurant in pretty grounds. Ten 
minutes beyond it is the Zoological 

Finally, it may be added that 
the Hanover cemeteries are of 
considerable interest, the Engesoh- 
dener, with its magnificent monu' 
ments and beautiful flowers, being 
especially fine.

The town has retained much of its 




mediaeval appearance, and possesses 
many good examines of timber- 
work. The most important build- 
ings are:— 

The SehloMy a handsome edifice,

is the Thoslre^ a beantlfal btiildiug, to 
the N. of which stands the monument 
to the oomposer Frans Abt« 

Returning again westwards, through 
Stein wegi we come to Burg PI,, on 
which the Cathedral rises. It was 
built by Benry the Lion towards 
the cloae of the 12th century and 
is an edifice in Romanesque style. 
Unfortunately, the towers, which 
were burned down the year after 
Its complelion^ have never been fully 
restored. The interior is shown by 
the sacristan, who lives at No. 5 
opposite the western door. 

It contains an early* Gothic monu- 
ment to the Founder and his eon- 
sort: there is also a brass, near 
tiie choir^ marking the spot where 

the remains of the Bmperar Otio I. 
are laid. In the southern aisle, there 
is a monument to Duke Louis Rudolf , 
cast in zinc. The decoration of the 
nave is from designs by Pr^f^sor 
Essenweiu, while the candelabra, 
hung in the nave, is copied from 
that in Hildesheim Cathedral. The 
frescoes in the choir and transept, 
the alabaster representation of Biskop 
Hermann, the sandstone statue of 
Henry the Lion, the wood^ figures 
of John the Baptist and St. Blasius 
and other carvings are worth seeing. 
The crypt, which is very large, con^ 
tains the family vault of several 
branches of the Guelphs: it has 
to be lighted, and is shown for a 
special fee. 

To the N. of the Cathedral is a 
bronze figure erected on a pedestal 
by Henry the Lion (1166). Eastwards 
from it is the old Palace built by Henry 
on the spot where the Castle o/Dank- 
waderode stood. The present building 
having suffered repeatedly from the 
ravages of fire, has been recently 
restored. The southern side of Burg PL 
is occupied by the Police StaUon, 
the Law Courts and the New Siadt- 
haus, the Old Stadihaus being on the 
eastern side of the square. North of 
this last building stands the Armory 
and beyond it, in Caspari St, the 
"Provincial Museum", On the square 
at the end of the street, there is a 
fountain with a statue of Henry the 
Lion, Here, too, rises the Church of 
St, Catharine, a handsome building, 
said to have been commenced by 
Henry the Lion. 

HagenbrOcke, a street running west* 
wards from Hagenmarkt, leads to the 
Neustadt Raihaus containing the ' 
Museum with collections of Tent 
antiquities, various works of ert 
The ground -floor contains the ( 
Archives and Library, In the eout 
chamber, there is some beau 
panelling dating from the 16th < 
Through Kuchen St. and then tal 
the first turning to the right 

the AUe Vfaage, a fine old 
wooden structure in late-Gothic (1634). 
Beyond it is St, Andrew* s Church, 
of which the story goes that it was 
built by rich cripples: it is an edifice, 
partly Transitional and partly Gothic. 
The tower, 300 feet high, was built 
in 1740, the original (1.^18) having 
been destroyed by lightning. The 
gable of the southern aisle is em- 
bellished with sculptures representing 
the Annunciation, the Adoration of 
the Magi, Plight into Egypt and 
the Throne of Christ: the steps of 
this last are thronged with cripples 
in allusion to the above legend. 
Returning by the '*Alte Waage" and 
passing through Meinhard Hof, we 
turn sharply to the right, and, a few 
paces further, reach the BrUdern' 
kirche, a large Gothic building with 
a copper font, some reliefs and an 
excellent altar-piece: it has also some 
beautiful stained -glass and choir 
stalls. Working from here towards 
the S. W., we come to Altstadt 
Markt, where the Altstadt Ratkaus 
stands. . It is an elegant and inter- 
esting Gothic building commenced 
in 1250, with open arcades whose 
9 pillars bear each a statue of a 
Saxon prince. 

Opposite the Rathaus is St, Martinis 
Church, founded in the I2th cent, but 
enlarged and remodelled at several 
different periods. The fafades con- 
tain some excellent carving and fine 
porches. In the wall, at one of the 
corners, is a tombstone representing 
von Rauchhaupt in full armour as 
ho fell during an attack upon the 
town in 1615. In the interior of 
the building is a brass font and 
interesting old pulpit embellished 
ih marble reliefs. There is also 
nonument of Hans JUrgen, the 
rover of the spinning-wheel, 
'he Altstadt Markt contains also 
le fine old private houses, and is 
»rned with a pewter fountain erected 
1408. Through the Eiermarkt to 
S. we reach the Synagogue, in 

ByzantO' Moresque style. The old 
ramparts, laid -out as gardens and 
promenades, contain several modem 
buildings and statues, among which 
the following may be mentioned:—: 
The Monument commemorating the 
war of 1870: it is an enormous figure 
of Germania, supported by an obelisk. 
To the N. of it is a bronze statue 
of Lessing, who died at 12 Aegidien- 
marJti in 1781. He is buried in the 
Cemetery of St, Magnus Church, 
which is situated in the S.E. of the 
town ; close by is a monument to 
Schill who, together with 14 of his 
soldiers, was shot and buried on the 
spot by order of Napoleon the First

HILDESHEIM is a semi - Catholic 
city, which has preserved its mediaeval 
character in such perfection as to 
have earned the cognomen of Nurem- 
berg of the North. 

The quaintness of the place is in 
keeping with the legend of its origin. 
While hunting, Ludwig the Pious, hav- . 
ing followed the quarry too eagerly, 
got separated from his companions. 
Benighted in a lonely spot, he lay 
down to sleep and was visited by an 
angel falling as snow. This messenger 
made him various revelations, and 
directed him the way home. On 
waking, the king found a rose-bush 
where the angel had stood. Here, 
therefore, he erected a cathedral 
round which the town afterwards 
grew up. 

Historically, the place is first 
mentioned as the seat of a bishop in 
814. In the following century, Hildes- 
heim displayed remarkable artistic 
activity, and became, two centuries 
later, one of the chief centres of 
Romanesque art 

Its principal buildings, which illus- 
trate admirably the transition from 
Ogival to Renaissance may be visited 

from the railway station in the 
following order:-" 

The Town Hall, a late- Gothic 
edifice of the 14th cent, — colonnaded 
aAd containing on the first floor a scries 
of fine frescoes by Prell: the most strik- 
ing are that representing Lewis the Pious 
and Irmingard conferring the bishopric 
on Gunthar; and that of Hermann (Ar- 
minius) handing over the Roman spoil 
to the priests at Galgenberg. 

Hard by, there are several inter- 
esting gabled houses embellished with 
beautiful carvings: the finest are the 
Templar House, Wedekind's House 
(1589) and the Knochenhaner House 
(1529), the last being considered the 
largest and handsomest timber struc- 
ture in Germany. 

St, Andrew's Church possesses a 
14ih cent, choir and a high modern 

The Cathedral was founded in 872, 
the present building exemplifying the 
late-Gothic and Romanesque periods. 
The interior, decorated in Barocco 
style, contains numerous interesting 
relics, such as a large candelabra, a 
13th cent, font, a remarkable, carved 
pillar and some very old MSS. of 
music. In the cloisters will be found 
the famous rose-tree referred-to above. 

The Romer-Museum contains varied 

St, Godehard's Church in the S. of 
the city, is a 12th cent. Romanesque 
edifice, admirably restored and con- 
taining frescoes and relics. 





Following the ramparts northwest- 
wards, we reach the 

Magdalena Church (I3tb cent.) 
with notable artistic productions by 
Bern wards. 

Hence, the Hoher Wall brings us 
to the War Monument; while hard 
by is St, Michael's Church, founded 
by Bishop Bernward, and constituting 
one of the grandest Romanesque 
basilicas in Germany. 

Recently the town has begun to 
add to its artistic interests also 
those of commerce; and a great 
number of factories have sprung up 
of which the most important is, per- 
haps, Senkin^s Cooking-Range and 
Stove Works.

'Hamelin town in Bmnswick*', wjth 
"the river Weser deep and wide, which 
washes its walls on the sonthem side^*, 
has obtained an accidental celebrity Vtv 
reason of its legend of the Pied P 
a story made familiar to the Bng 
speaking peoples by Robert Browi 

It is a quaint old town an^ is jo 
to the left bank of the Hver b, 
saspension bridge, not far from 
influx of the Hameln stream. 

The finest of its edifices is the 

Minster of St.Bonifaee, sitnaied 1 
the bridge and dating from the ll^b ct 
though, after a oonflagration * 
Uth cent., completely reouilt. 


Besides this building, the town con- 
tains also a number of Renaissance 
(tmotures of considerable interest, the 
most important of them being:— 
Dempter Honse, at 7 Uarkt, Hoehseits- 
hans at 2 Oster St. and the world- 
famed BsttenfSngerhsns at 7 Oster St 
The last of these is, of coarse, connected 
with the famous legend referred -to 
above. As to the origin of the story, 
various explanations have been given, 
the most commonly accepted being that 
it is based on the tradition of an epi- 
demic of choreomania which is said to 
have seized the youth of the town to- 
wards the close of the 13ti» cent. In all 
probability, however, it is but a warped 
remembrance of the "Children's Orusade" 
which took place in 1211. 

BXCUBSIONS: Of these the favourite 
are:— (1) to the Klfit, a once fortified ele-

PYRMONT is a spa of great renown 
with a permanent population of 3,000, 
the number of its guests and patients 
being upwards of 20,000 annually. 
The h'ttle town is situated, at an 
altitude of rather more than 400 ft., 
in the pretty valley of the Emmer. 
The hills surrounding it are dad 
with thick woods whose luxurious 
foliage enlivens the exquisite scenery 
with its rich tints. They are reached 
by the beautiful avenues that lead 
from the town in various directions 
and, commencing with a gentle in- 
cline, become gradually steeper and 
steeper as they approach the summits 
of the hills. 

These last, rising to a height of 



over 1,500 feet, effectually protect 
the town against bleak or boisterous 
winds, but lend it, at the same time, 
all the advantages of a mountain 
climate. The mean summer temper- 
ature does not rise above 16^ C; 
while intense cold is rare during 
the winter months. The season lasts 
from the beginning of May till the 
10th of Oct. 

The air is bracing and invigorat- 
ing: the newly-arrived patient feels, 
almost at once, the exhilarating effect 
up'on the nervous system; the appe- 
tite is stimulated and tone given to all 
the functions of the body. Moreover, 
to the influence of the atmosphere 
is added that of the waters. There 
are, in all, eight springs falling under 
two heads, namely the ferruginous 
and the saline. 

The water of the Hauptquelle (Chief 
Spring) contains a large proportion of 
calcium carbonate, calcium sulphate 
and magnesium sulphate: its prin- 
cipal chlorides are those of sodium 
and lithium; while a large quantity of 
iron occurs in the form^^of bicarboniate 
of iron-protoxide. The water, which 
is effervescent, tastes ferruginous and 
slightly acid. The spring yields be- 
tween 350 and 400 litres per hour; 
and the water is consequently des- 
patched in large quantities to various 
parts of the world. 

The Brodelhrunnen, which yields 
between 7,000 and 8,000 litres hourly 
and is used only for bathing purposes, 
contains also a large percentage of 
iron. The quantity of carbonic-acid 
gas is so great that, as the water 

3719 PYRMONT- 




rises, it throws off thousands of 
bubbles, which, bursting on contact 
with the atmosphere, produce a 
noise audible throughout the length 
of the avenue in which the spring 
is situated; hence its name of 'fons 

The Helenenquelle differs but 
slightly from, the Hauptquelle in com- 
position, containing more sulphates 
and somewhat less iron. Of all the 
chalybeate springs it is the richest 
in carbonic acid, and possesses a 
most agreeable flavour: it yields 
12,000 litres of water an hour having 
a temperature of 12.7^ C. and a 
specific weight of 1.0038. 

Of the lemaining springs the most 
deserving of mention are :— the Augen- 
brunnen, used in treatment of the eyes, 
the Trampelschc Eisensauerlinge; 

and the Pyrmonter Sauerling, much 
prized as a ^.able beverage. 

The waters of the first four springs 
mentioned above are led through 
underground conduits to the reser- 
voirs at Stahlbadehaus, whence they 
are distributed to the various baths. 

Salzbrunnen, opened in 1795 by 
Dr, Tratnpel, rises on the left bank 
of the Emmer. The water is clear, 
slightly sparkling, and salt, but b»a 
a very agreeable and refresh 
flavour. It tastes best when dr 
at the spring, but is despatchec 
bottles and flasks to Pyrmont e\

Close by is the Old SoolqUi 
whose waters, differing but 1 
from the above, are employed o 
for bathing purposes.

The New Soolquelle; bored in 1856, 
is situated on the right bank of the 
stream at the foot of Muhlenberg, 
Its waters, likewise used for bathing 
only, contain above four per cent of 
mineral matter (3*20/o salt), and rank 
among the best of their kind. 

As a valuable adjunct to the above, 
mud-baths are employed according to 
the latest scientific methods. 

The so-called /mud', which contains 
a high percentage of iron, sulphur, 
carbonic acid, formic acid, ammonia 
&c., is obtained from the fens lying 
beyond the pavilion park, and is at 
least equal in medicinal value to those 
of Franzensbad and Marienbad. 

After being dug out, it is laid in 
sheds to be weathered. Thence it is 
carried to th^ Moorbadehaus, dried 
in lofts, and afterwards ground in 
a mill. Having been sifted, it is dis- 
tributed for use to the various bathing 

The principal street in Pyrmont is 
Brunnen St. Here are situated the 
G. Post Office as well as most of the 
Hotels and large houses of business. 
It is a fine promenade lined on the 
one side with lime-trees and on the 
other with oaks. Its western end is 
occupied by the "Brunnen": while, 
looking southwards, we catch a 
glimpse of the Muhlenberg Hills. 
From the Brunnen, a continuation of 
the street, named Bassin St.» leads 

past the Helenenquelle and the play- 
grounds along the southern side 
of the pavilion park. A few paces 
to the N. E. of Brunnen PI. is 
the New Stadtkirche, a handsome 
Gothic building in which, during 
the season, English services are 
held. Returning through the same 
street, across Brunnen PI., we 
pass, on our left hand, Altenau 
PL, beautifully laid -out and de- 
corated with a vase modelled by 
Prof, Drake and presented by 
him to the town. A few steps 
beyond, and on the same side 
of the way, is Kaiser PU em- 
bellished with Volcke*s monu- 
ment to the Franco -Prussian War. 
At the end of the street there is a 
fountain, whence we can return 
through the magnificent avenue 
termed the Haupt Allee, whose 
mighty lindens, 2CX) years old, 
intertwine their branches over- 
head like the archings of a church- 
aisle. In the avenue is situated the 
Theatre which, though its exterior 
is somewhat old in appearance, has a 
comfortable, modem auditorium. 
Close by is the handsome 
New Pavilion (Kurhaus). The main 
building consists of two stories, the 
upper one containing the large ball- 
room and concert-room, with elegant 
side-apartments. In one of the wings 
is the magnificent dining-room; u' "

The roofs of both wings are laid- 
out as terraces with hanging gardens. 
From the western wing, one obtains 
a beautiful view across the park 
to the Goldfish Pond^ surround- 
ed by numerous copper beeches. 
Looking southwards, we see the 
white walls of the Lugdc Cloisters; 
while immediately across the park 
rises the

and an unusually broad moat This 
building contains a number of pictures 
by Fischbein which, together with a 
few other objects of interest, may 
be inspected by the public. The 
ramparts, too, are worth seeing, if 
only for the sake of an enormous 
lime-tree, whose trunk measures over 
16 feet in circumference, while the 
foliage droops to the earth all round, 
and forms a charming arbour.

This ancient and formerly Hanseatic

The Cathedral dates from the 13th 
cent, and contains, in the southern 
vestibule, sculptures of Christ and 
the Apostles. Most of the old deco- 
rations were destroyed by the Ana- 
baptists ; but there are a marble group 
by Achtermann, a 14th cent, painting 
above the north porch and a relief 
over the southern one. Opposite the 
Cathedral is the Stadthaus, containing 
statues of Hermann (see Osnabriick), 
and others. Not far from this building 
is the beautiful Ludgerus Brunnen 
In the Dom PL stands also the Uni- 
versiiy. Behind it is the ancient 
Jesuit College where, in the Pauline 
Library, are some interesting portraits, 
including one of John Leyden, the 
Anabaptist. On the Haupt Markt 
rises the Rafkaus, a fine edifice with 
a handsome Gothic gable. The most 
interesting room in the building is 
the Friedensaal, where the Peace 
of Westphalia was signed in 1648. 

Adjacent to the Rathaus is the old 
Weigh House: while, on the other 
side, stands the Stadikeller, both build- 
ings being in Renaissance style, and 
the latter containing some Italian and 
German pictures of an early period. 
At the N. end of Haupt Markt rises 
St. Lambert *s Church, in elegant 
1 4 th cent. Gothic. 

A little to the N.W. of Dom PI. 
and just across the river, is the 
Church of Our Lady, another fine 
Gothic building of the 14 th cent. 
The choir possesses some fine stained- 
glass; while, beneath the organ-loft, 
are two pictures by Ludger torn Ring, 
one of the best representatives of 
the Miinster school. 

St.Aegidius and the Ludgerikirche 
are two churches, in the S. of the town, 
which are well worth seeing; while 
close to the western ramparts stands 
the abbey Church of St. Maurice, 
In the N. of the city is the Church 
of St, Martin, commenced in the

OBYNHAUSEN is a favourite bath 
founded in 1846. It lies in a beautiful 
spot on the Werra, between the Weser 
Mountains and the heigbts of Teuto- 
burger forest, and, beine surrounded 
by fine woods^ enjoys a nealthy and 
invigorating climate. 

The spa possesses four thermal 

and two ordinary springs; but it 

is chiefly to the former that the 

[ h owes its fame as a health- 

1 >rt. The waters, which possess 

i atural temperature ranging from 

C. to 34*5^ C, contain some 

various salts, and are surcharged 

i carbonic acid. 

The value of this gas in the 

itment of nervous debility and 

ired complaints is well known. 

nother advantage of the Oeyn* 

hausen springs is their variety. This 
is so great that it enables physicians 
to obtain by mixture, baths of any 
required strength and to adapt the 
treatment to the peculiarities of the 
patient^s constitution. 

One of the springs, the Borloclh 
soole, rises unmixed, and contains 
90/q of common salt: the other, the 
Schachtsoole , is mingled near the 
head of the shaft with fresh water 
and thus reduced in strength to 3% 
of salt. 

By combining these two, any de- 
sired proportion of salt may be 
obtained in the bath. 

The high percentage of common 
salt in the Borloch Spring is one 
of the great characteristics of Oeyn- 
hausen, and the variety of the 
springs adapts the spa for the 
treatment of diseases of the most 
manifold character. 

The principal edifices in Oeyn- 
hausen are naturally the Pavilion 
and the Bath Houses. The former, 
besides its theatre and covered 
colonnade, possesses reading, music, 
drawing and dining rooms. Beau- 
tiful grounds, 120 acres in extent, 
surround the building, and form the 
chief resort of visitors.

This old place is the chief town 
in Westphalia. It is purely industrial, 
most of the inhabitants being engaged 
in the metal foundries, or in the large 
and celebrated breweries. There are, 
however, a few buil-dings of interest, 
such as the Church of SU Reinold, 
which contains some good stained-

lectern &c. Close by is 5/. Mary*s

basilica with an early - Gothic choir 
and an interesting old altar-piece. 
Other old churches are SL Pcter\

and the Roman Catholic Church, 
near the Markt PI. The old Rathaus 
also stands here: having fallen into 
a somewhat ruinous state, it was 
tastefully restored in 1899, and now 
forms one of the most interesting 
sights of the town. At Hoherwall 
is the monument to the war of 1870. 

In the middle - agea, when Dortmund 
was a free and Hanse town, its com- 
meroial importance was much greater 
than at the present day; bat, since the 
reunion of the German states, it has 
been rapidlv returning to its old posi- 
tion, one of the leading firms being that 
of the engineering concern "DortmuQder 
Union", whose works deserve inspection. 
Donbtless, as the centre of a large mining 
district, Dortmund is destined to take 
even a higher place among German 
manufacmring towns than it at present 
holds. Till recently, all its prodacts 
had to be despatched by rail, and all 
its supplies obtained in like manner. Bat, 
in Ang. 1899, a canal, connecting it with 
the Ems and the Rhine, was opened 
which has already began to work its 
baneficial effects, raw material and food 
supplies being brought from the North 
Sea and from Holland, while the pro- 
ducts of the town now leave for all parts 
of the world by the same routes.

DOSSELDORF is an important 
town situated on the right bank 
of the Rhine and possessing a con- 
siderable number of large industrial 
concerns. But it is principally cele- 
brated for its School of Art, and 
disputes with Cassel the third place 
among the art centres of Germany. 
The Picture Gallery was founded 
by the Elector John William at 
the opening of the 18th century; 
while the Academy was established 
by Charles Theodore in 1767. This 
latter association possesses a fine 
Renaissance building near the Rhine 
Bridge and facing the Hofgarten; 

it contains a large number of 
school - rooms, studios &c. Among 
its treasures are some casts and a 
considerable number of paintings, 
drawings and copper-plates: the great 
Hall is decorated with a fine series 
of frescoes by Peter Jansseu, the 
president. In Men Lagerhaus, close 
by, there is a Historical Museum 
with collections of Roman and 
Prankish antiquities. The bridge 
beyond it, with its two enormous 
arches and gigantic lion , is also 
worth seeing. Passing southwards, 
along the bank of the Rhine, a few 
paces bring us to the Church of 
St, Albert with a tower partly Ro- 
manesque, partly Gothic. The latter 
style is also that of the main building, 
which was erected towards the close 
of the 14th cent., and contains marble 
tombs of Dukes William V. and John 
William III. of Cleves &c. 

A short distance further, across 
Burg PI., we reach the Old Rat- 
haus, a 16th century building. The 
Markt PU is decorated with a 
pewter statue of the Elector John 
William, cast by Gruppello in 1711. 
Through Muhlen St eastwards 
rises the 

Church of St, Andrew, a building 
erected in 1629 and containing an 
altar - piece by Deger and some 
interesting tombs. Beyond it, at 
Friedrich's PI., is situated the 

Kunsthalle, containing the per- 
manent exhibition and the town col- 
lection of paintings of the modern 
Diisseldorf School. The most strik- 
ing pictures are those by the two 
Achenbachs, Cornelius, Camphausen, 
Lenbach, Janssen &c. In front of 
the building, there is a bronze statue 
of Bismarck by Bauer and Rdttger. 
Opposite the Kunsthalle are statues 
of the Emperor William I. and 
Count Molike, Close by is the 
Museum of Industrial Art with col- 
lections of textile fabrics, laces, em- 
broidery, porcelain, wood-carvings &c.: 
there are also rooms representing 


various countries and epochs, and 
collections of Japanese and Hindoo 

Across Allee St stands the Theatre, 
and behind it, in Hof Garten, a 
monument to the Franco - Prussian 
War, which is among the best of 
its kind. Southwards from here is 
a monument to the celebrated artist 
Cornelius: it is a bronze group 
by Donndorf with allegorical figures 
of poetry, religion &c. 

Cornelius is the greatest painter 
Diisseldorf has produced; he was born 
in 1783 at 15 Kurze St Perhaps 
the other most celebrated native of 
the town is Heinrich Heine, bom 
at 53 Bolker St. in 1799.

MtliHEIM (POP. I 50,000. — HOT.: 
BrSsseler Hof) is a busy industrial town, 
situated almost opposite Cologne, its 
chief maniTActures being linen, silk, 
telegraph t fires, chemicals &c. The 
place possfises a fine Gothic Churoh 
and a notefi weaving- schooL 


is an ancient place, formerly fortified, 
and containing a magnificent new 
church in Romanesque style.. 

Some few years since, the town 
was incorporated with Cologne. 
Like r4her suburbs of the city, it 
possesses a considerable number of 
machine factories and similar con- 
cerns, which render it interesting to 
the teUmical world. 


This beautiful and wonderful river, 
parent of much contention an' 
many songs, has its source ir

lie between Mayence and Cologne: 
this part of it is traversed by the 
steamers of the "Rhein Dampfschiff- 
fahrt Gesellschaft", The trip is most 
commonly taken on the return journey 
from Switzerland in order to save 
time; but those who travel upstream 
have, perhaps, a better opportunity 
of enjoying the varied and romantic 
scenery which comes into view at 
every turn in the river. In the 
guide, the upstream route has been 
foUowedi since so many Americans 
arriving at Hamburg travel, lirst to 
Berlin and thence via Magdeburg, the 
Harz Mts. and Hanover to Cologne. 
From here, the steamer may be taken 
to Mayence, the journey being broken 
at any of the various stopping- places. 
The guide will, however, be found 

just as useful for those who prefer 
to do Switzerland first and the 
Rhine afterwards; as, the order of 
the towns being merely reversed, 
one has only to turn to the end 
of the section, "The Rhine", and 
then work backwards.

The celebrated old city of COLOGNE 
is one of the most important com- 
mercial centres of Germany, and, 
with its suburbs Nippes, Ehrenfeld, 
Lindenthal and Bayenthal, has a 
pop. of about 450,000. As its naiae 
indicates, it was an old Roman settle- 
ment, and its ancient character is 
preserved in its numerous crooked 
streets and narrow alleys; though the 
modern part of the town (Neustadt) 
with its magnifltent buildings will 
bear comparison with the most beau- 
tiful cities of Europe. Nevertheless, 
it is no easy matter for the stranger 




First-class house patronised by royalty. 

to find his way about Cologne, and, 
consequently, we would recommend 
the following route as enabling 
the sight-seer to do as much as 
possible with the smallest expendi- 
ture of time. 

Starting from the Central Station, 
the Cathedral comes first, thence 
across Domhof and westwards 
through Unter Goldschmidt past 
the Moltke Monument, Here, we 
turn to the left, and, in a few paces, 
reach the porch of the Rathaus; 
thence, to the left, through Burger St, 
to Alien Markt, where the back 
of the Rathaus and the monument 
to Jan van Werth may be viewed. 
Through Unter Kdsten to Heu- 
markt (monument to Frederick 
William III.), through Bolzen Gasse 

to GUrzeffich. From here, past the 
Colosseum to Casino PI. {Bismarck 
Monument), If time permit, a visit 
should be paid to the Church of 
Maria im Capitol, close by. From 
Bismarck Monument, along Hohe St, 
as far as Wallrafs PI., where 
the Wallraf-RichartZ' Museum is 
situated. Thence through Rohren 
Gasse to the Palace of Justice, and 
across Katenhug to Unter^Sachsen- 
hausen (Palais Oppenheim, A. Schaaff- 
hausen*scher Bankverein, the New 
Imperial Bank and the General 
Post Office). 

In the centre of :he city almost 
the only means of ^'xiimunication 
is the cab, the streets scarcely per- 
mitting the passage of other vehicles; 
but the Ring Tramway is very useful 

in visiting the splendid buildings of 
the *Neustadt*; and those who have 
time should make the whole Journey 
round the town in this way. Horse- 
cars also run to the various suburbs, 
and alongside the Rhine to the Zoolo- 
gical Gardens and Flora Garden. 
One of the cars runs to Nippes and 
the City 'VolksgarUn'. 

The Cathedral is considered to be 
the crown of Gothic architecture:— 
its grand proportions, innumerable 
turrets, and delicate tracery produce 
an effect upon the beholder at 
once imposing and overawing. The 
building was begun in 1248, on 
the spot where its predecessor had 
stood. Master Gerard is the man 
whose spirit breathes through the 
design^ though the actual build- 
ing, hindered by disputes between 

the Archbishops and the dty, 
progressed but slowly under him 
and his son John. Continued with 
ardour through just two centuriest 
the work then began to slacken. 
Indeed by the end of the 18 th cent 
the ediUce was falling to ruin and 
was used by the French as a 
bam. But Frederick William . IIL 
of Prussia Issued an order for its 
restoration, and the work of com- 
pletion was carried on apace; 
so that, by 1880, the perfected 
edifice was solemnly opened in the 
presence of the Emperor William L 
and the other assembled German 

The building is cruciform, with a 
nave and double aisles. Its finest 
parts are the main porch (100 feet 
high)- and the western fa9ade,

rising, lofty and clear, in lines that 
renew themselves to the very top- 
most turrets: — the poKh of the 
tower, decorated with sculpturing 
of the 15 th cent., is also very 
beautiful. The choir is surrounded 
with seven chapels and is the oldest 
part of the building. 

The interior is majestic in its 
simplicity, the eye almost losing 
itself in the endeavour to follow 
the lofty pillars that branch away 
into the vaulting of the roof above. 
But the severity of the stone -work 
is modified by the rich colouring 
of the stained - glass. The finest 
windows are those of the N. aisle 
which date back to the beginning 
of the 16 th cent. The choir and 
treasury, for which tickets must be 
obtained (1.60 mk.), are very inter- 
esting. In the former will be found 


some excellent wood -carving of the 
15th century, some beautiful old 
stained-glass, and a number of statues 
and frescoes ; while the treasury 
possesses two valuable old reli- 
quaries, one of gold and one of 
silver, and respectively of Ro- 
manesque (1200) and of Renaissance 
workmanship: other treasures are 
a Romanesque cross, a sword of 
justice &c. 

The Drei Konigen Kapelle is 
said to be the resting-place of the 
three Kings (?) who came to worF**'" 
the child Jesus, their remains 1 
ing been brought hither from \ 
by Kaiser Frederick I. Beneat 
slate lies the heart of Maria 
Medicis: St. Michael's Kapelle 
tains the so-called Domhild, 
finest painting of the old Cole 
school and mentioned by ^ 

in his diary: the other Chapels con- 
tain similar works of art, which should 
be examined if time permit. 

The statue of Count Moltke on 
Laurenz PI. is by Schaper. 

The Raihaus is an interesting build- 
ing begun in the Mth cent., but with 
extensive additions made at later pe- 
riods. It contains a beautiful Renais- 
sance hall and a fine Hansa Saal with 
many ancient portraits and some ex- 
cellent black oak, brought to light a 
few years since during some resto- 
rations. At the back of the building 
is a fountain with a statue of Jan 
van Werth, the general who played 
an important part in the Thirty Year's 
War, and whose unrequited love for 
a damsel of Cologne is represented in 
the reliefs. 

The colossal statue of Frederick 
William III. of Prussia was erected in 

1878: it is surrounded with repre- 
sentations of Prussian statesmen, 
soldiers etc. such as Hardenberg, 
Blizcher, York, Beuth, Gneisenau, the 
Humboldts and many others. 

The Gurzenich is a 15th cent, build- 
ing erected at enormous expense by 
the town council to ferve as a ball- 
room and for the giving of grand 
municipal festivities. The exterior is 
unimportant; but the interior contains 
some beautiful stained-glass and, pos- 
sessing excellent acoustic properties, is 
now used principally as a concert-room. 

The bronze statue of Bismarck at 
Augustiner PI. was erected in 1879 
from Schaper's designs. 

The Ch. of St, Maria im Capitol is 
a cruciform Romanesque basilica, and, 
next to the cathedral, the finest ecclesi- 
astical building in the city. • It dates 
from the early half of the llt^h cent., 




and contains some beautiful stained- 
glass and a magnificent crypt. 

The City Museum, erected some 45 
yearssince, at a cost of 17 5, 000 dollars, 
is called also the Walraf Richartz Mu- 
seum, Herr Walraf having bequeathed 
the nucleus of the collections, and 
Herr Richartz having provided the 
means for the building of the edifice. 

From March to October, the place 
is open on weekdays from 9-4 o'clock, 
Sun. and FesL 9-1 and 3-5; from 
Nov. till Febr. on weekdays from 10-3, 
Sun. and Fest. 10-1 and 3-4. The 
ground-floor contains collections of 
antiquities, both Roman and mediaeval. 
The stair-case is decorated with fres- 
coes by Steinle illustrating the history 
of art. and civilisation. The upper 
storey contains the picture gallery, 
which is divided into the Italian school 
(also containing the recently acquired 
Murillo), the old Cologne school (very 

extensive), the Dutch and Flemish 
schools (Rubens, Jan Steen, Jordaens, 
Cuyp&c.)and the modern school (most' 
ly German artists, e, g, A. v. Werner, 
Lenbach, Leasing, Achenbach &c.). 
The Palace of Justice, at Apellhof 
PI., is a fine modern building with a 
handsome front. Close by are the 
Armory, the Government Offices and 
the Romer Thurm ; while the street 
opposite the N. fa9ade of the Law 
Courts, and called Katenbug, leads to 
LJnter Sachsenhausen, where we turn 
to the right, and, in a few paces, reach 
the Imperial Bank, a new sand-stone 
building in early-Gothic style and op- 
posite which is the General Post Of- 
fice, a magnificent structure likewise 
in early-Gothic and containing statues 
of Stephan, the late postmaster-general, 
and of Freiherr von Thurn the father 
of the German Post. Opposite the 
Imperial Bank are the offices of the

(see*banks', above). Close by is Palais

portant and interesting buildings, the 
following should, if time allow, be 
visited, namely, St. Martin's le Grand, 
between Alten Markt and the Rhine, 
the Tempelhaus, a beautiful Roman- 
esque building at 8 Rhein Gasse, St 
Andreaskirche, near the Post Office, 
the Jesuitenkirche, in Marzellen St., 
StGereon's Church, at the northern end 
of Gereon St., with the City Library 
hard by, and St.Severin's Church, near 
the end of the fine street of the same 
name. This street is closed by a beau- 
tiful gate-way, a remnant of the me- 
diaeval fortifications. From here, passing 
through the Karthauserwall, we come 
to the Ulrepforte, an old round-tower, 
beyond which a portion of the ancient 
city wall still stands. Close by is the 
Ulredenkmal, a 14 th century relief 

commemorating the victory of the 
municipal party over the soldiers of 
Archbishop Engelbert. 

From here, passing along the Ring 
to the western part of the town, we 
come to the Hahnenthor, the third 
of the old gate- ways. 

Still further round the Ring is a 
monumental fountain to the Emperor 
William I., and, seme distance beyond 
it, \hQ Museum of Industrial Art, an 
edifice containing bronzes, glasses, 
book-bindings &c. from the 12th cent 
downwards. Near the eastern end of 
the Ring is Eigelsteinihor ; while east- 
ward of Hahnenthor, mentioned above, 
and almost in the very centre of the 
city, lies the Neumarkt. Here, at the 
corner of Richmod St., is the house 
of Richmodis von Aducht, who, being 
informed that his wife had awaked from 
a trance, replied that he would sooner 
believe his horses had climbed to the

are chalybeate and very efficacious in 
the treatment of nervous complaints. 

The town was once the capital 
of a duchy of the same name, and 
still contains the old Ducal Casilc 
commonly called the Schwanenhurg, 
interesting to Englishmen as being 
the palace in which Anne, daughter 
of the Duke of Cleves and wife of 
Henry VIII., was born. The building 
has now been converted into law- 
courts and prison. The arcade of the 
court*yard contains an old Romaa 
altar; while, from the terrace and 
the Schwanenthurm (1439), extensive 
views of the lower Rhine are obtained. 

The Siiftshirche (Cathedral) is a 
magnificent brick -building in Gothic 
style, erected in the H^h cent, and 
containing some interesting tombs 
of the Counts and Dukes of Cleves. 
The only other building of interest is

A(X-LA-GHAPELLE (or German: 
Aaahen) lies in a lovely and fertile valley 
snrrouDded by wooded heit^hts. In 
forcner times and especially in the days 
of Ciiari^ma^np, it was one of the lead- 
ing' oitjes m Kurope. But its former 
impurtaT^ca is eow represented only by 
a luw striking buildings, among which 
the tin est ia tb^ 

Minster, standing in the centre of 
the cily. The body of the edifice is an 
octagon in Byzantine style surmounted 
by a cupola. The interior, which is 
borno upon eight enormous pillars, 
con^nins a fine mosaic and a gilded 
candolabra over 13 feet in diameter: 
beneath it is the grave of Charlemagne, 
mtirked wiih the words Carolo Magno. 

In the so-called Hungarian Chapel wMI 
be found the treasury, which is very 
rich in old pictures, statues, reliefs, 
precious stones &c. The choir is tight 
and airy, and contains some modem 
stained-glass and 16th cent, carving. 

The Rathau8 (1353—1370) is an 
interesting Gothic building close by the 
Minster: the stair-case and the Kaiser- 
saal, to which it leads, are very fine, the 
latter being decorated with a series of 
excellent modern frescoes: the Sessions 
Room is worth visiting for its 17 por- 
traits of emperors and popes, among 
them, one of the present Emperor by 
Anton von Werner. The two handsome 
towers which flank it were erected 
from designs by Prof.Frentzen in 1902 
to replace the 13^^ cent, structures 
destroyed by fire in 1883. 

The Knrhansy bnilt in 1782, contains a 
ball-room, concert- room &c^t the back is 
the Kursaal in Moresque style: it faces to- 
wards the Kurgarten; and in it weekly 
concerts take place. The Elisenbrnnnen 
is in a Doric hall at Wilbelm*s Pi. 

Other buildings of note are the Teeta- 
nieal High School, St. Peter's Church, 
8t« Albert's Chareta, the Synagogue and 
the Saermondt Maseam. The last con- 
tains the collection of pictures presented 
by the founder, from whom the gallery 
takes its name. As is natural, the bulk 
of the paintings belong to the Dutch and 
Klemish schools, but there are also spe- 
cimens of Constable, Kranach & Muriilo. 

A aiburb of Aix, named 

BORCETTE or Bartscheid (POP.:

springs and a Kurhaus. It is largely

BONN is a famous university city 
beautifully situated on the left bank of 
the Rhine, here spanned by a fine bridge 
erected in 1898. It contains several inter- 
esting buildings^ of which the following 
are the most important, namely:— 

The MinsUr, a magnificent structure 
standing almost in the centre of the 
city. The edifice is one of the finest spe* 
dmens of late -Romanesque architec- 
ture extant, and has, besides its four 
turrets, a tower over 300 ft. in height. 
The interior contains several interesting 
statues, reliefs and mosaics; while the 
crypt (1 1th cent) is also worth seeing. 
Close by stands the 

University, the former Electoral 
Palace. As a teaching university it is 
one of the most celebrated in Europe, 

and, among the many royal personages 
educated here, are the reigning Em- 
peror, the Prince of Sachsen -Weimar, 
the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg, and 
the present German Crown Prince and 
other sons of the Emperor William II. 
Its library contains over 250,000 vols, 
and a large number of manuscripts. 
Behind the university lies the 

JELofgarteu, a fine square filled with 
a number of grand old trees. At its 
further end rises the 

Museum of Art (Akademisches 
Kunstmuseum), open free on Mon., 
Wed. & Fri., 2—4 p. m. The collec- 
tions consist of a large number of 
casts illustrating Egyptian, Assyrian 
and classical art, together with original 
tei'ra-cotta productions from Italy,

es being those by modern German 
'nters, such as the Achenbachs &c.

Cohlenzer Thor, giving approach tc 
the so-called 

Alten Zoll, which affords a flne view 
of the Siebengehirge, and contains a

BAD NEUENAHR, though probably 
known to the ancients, did not come 
into vogue as a modern health-resort 
until after 1867. Since that date, its 
charming situation in one of the 
loveliest lateral valleys of the Rhine, 
its excellent thermal spring and the 
care which has been bestowed by the 
Baths Committee on the arrange- 
ments of the place have caused it to 
rise rapidly in popularity. 

The great attraction of the spa 
lies in its wonderful springs, of which 
the 'Grosse Sprudel' is thermal. Its 
waters, though similar to those of 
Carlsbad and other warm spas, are 
considerably milder in character and 
consequently much easier of assi- 

Their effect upon the system is 
cleansing and stimulating, both as 
baths and as beverages. The prin- 
cipal complaints treated are:— catarrh 
of the respiratory organs, tubercu- 
losis, pleurisy, catarrh of the digestive 
organs and bladder, stone, inflamma- 
tion of the kidneys, diabetes, gout, 
Theumatism &c. 

Besides the waters, all kinds of 
baths are to be had at Neuennhr, 
together with inhalation, massage, 
Sv/edish gymnastics &c. 

Moreover, here is situated the 
Spring where the world - famous 
It is sent down the Rhine to Antwerp, 
Rotterdam, London, America, and, in 
fact, to all parts of the world. 

The Spring was discovered in 
1851; and the quantities of bottles 
sold, which were: — 8,000,000 in 
1880, 18,000,000 in 1890, now 
exceed 30,000,000 bottles. 

Some short distance further up the 
alley lies 

•rei Eroaen. — POP.: 4,700), an inter- 
esting old town which, though burnt 
down by the French during the 
troubles of the 1 7th cent., has retained 
its ancient walls and gates. It is the 
principal market ^for Red Ahr Wines, 

WALPOBZHHM ties 3 miles beyond 
Neuenahr, in the middle of the Ahr 
Valley just where it begins to narrow 
into a ravine. The place is celebrated 
for its excellent wines, the restaurant 
of S/. Peter being one of the best 
houses at which to obtain samples. 
The excursions in the neighbourhood 
are very beautiful: one of the most 
charming is to the "Bunten Kuh" 
where a beetling crag 200 ft. in height 
affords a good view. From Walporz- 
heim onwards, past Demau, with the 
ruins of Schaffenburg , the valley 
grows narrower and narrower till 

we reach 

▲ liTEBTAHB (HOTBLS: Caipaxll 

Bbeialaeher Hoi), a charming hamlet 
and pejhaps the pearl of the whole 
valley. Its finest points of view are 
Henlei and the bridge across the 
river. Above the town are the ruins 
of Altenahr Castle, perched upon a high 
and rugged crag. The spot affords 
a good view; but those obtained . 
from Weissen Kreuz and from 
Schwarzen Kreuz, respectively north- 
wards and southwards of the castle, 
are still finer. 

ft7i The Rhine, from REMAGEN t« 


and thence through the Eifel to 


liINZ (POP.: 4,000. — HOT.: Welm- 

stoek), is an ancient town still pos- 
sessing remnants of its old walla 
and towers. 

Si. Martin's CK erected at the 
beginning of the 13th cent., is an 
interesting building mainly in Roman- 
esque style and containing some 
beautiful stained-glass, frescoes, mo- 
numents and altar-piece (1463). 

RHEINBROHIi (POP. I 2,000) is a 
very old place possessing a pretty 
Gothic Ch., and situated on the right 
bank of the river in one angle of a 
three-cornered plain. Across the stream 
is seen the little hamlet of BROHL, 
at the entrance to the valley of the 
same name. To the right of it rises 


Sckloss Rheineck, erected in 1832 on 
the ruins of an ancient Castle. 

Some short distance from Bheinbroh], 
and at the apex of the plain, lies Bad 
Arienheller, in a sheltered spot between 
beech-clad hills. The little spa possesses 
excellent springs, a bath-honse and a 
fine hotel. 

ANUERBTACH (POP.: 8,400. — HOT.: 
Bhelniseher Hof ) is u qaaint old town 
picturesquely situated on the left bank 
of the Rhine. 

The finest of its buildings is the 
Pfarrkirclie, a Bomanesque edifice (12tb 
cent.), possessing an interesting choir, 
which is somewhat older than the main 
body of the bailding. The church has 
four fine towers, of which the oldest 
18 the Clock Tower* 

The Bathans is a 16^1^ century structure 
in late - (iothio style and containing 
collections of Boman and Frankish 
antiquities. At the back of the edifice, 
there is a curious structure called the 
Judenbad consisting of a cisterti 16 feet 
in length and 45 feet deep. 

The finest excursion is to LAACHEB 
SEE, the largest of the Eifel Lakes. 
It has a depth of 175 feet, the waters 
having collected in an extinct crater. 
On the southwestern bank of the lake 
is situated the Abbey of Laaoh. The 
Church is a fine Bomanesque building 
dating back to the 12ti> cent. 

From Andemach a line of rail runs 
up through the rugged and bleak high- 
lands of the Eifel to 

GEKOI.STEIX (ALT.: 1,230 feet. - 
HOT.: znr Post), which owes its name 
to Gerhardstein Castle founded in 1115 
and dismantled durine: the French wars, 
the ruina still crowning a height that 
overshadows the little town. 

The town possesses six springs, some 
of them of long standing, such as the 
Sidinger Brunnen, known to the Bomans 
and for years the attraction of thou- 
sands of pilgrims. 

In the neighbourhood, there are dO' 
light ful walks, the favourite being to 
Burg, Linde, Anberg &c.

The name *'COBLENZ" is merely 
the German corruption of the Roman 
word Confluentes, the town having 
been given this name by the Romans 
on account of its situation at the spot 
where the Moselle mingles its waters 
with those of the Rhine. Coblence is 
the capital of the Rhine Province, and 
boasts a situation that is perhaps un- 
rivalled by any other of the larger towns 
of the Rhine: the tongue of land upon 
which it lies, with its impoi 
palaces and elegant private buiidi' 
is flat and triangular, ending ii 
sharp apex upon which the 
statue of the Emp. William I, is- j 
from every point of view; while 
whole is shut in by the grand hei' 
of the surrounding mountains. 

The most important building if 

Schloss, facing the Rhine between 
Holzthor and the railway bridge. It 
IS a long structure, erected from de- 
signs by Ixnard and Peyre, between 
the years 1778 and 1785, and restored 
in 1842. The royal apartments are 
open to the public (tickets 25 pf.): 
they are situated on the first floor, 
and . contain some fine Gobelins 
and modern pictures. In the Kur- 
furstensaal (Hall of the Electors) hang 
portraits of the Electors from loll 
down to Clemens Wenceslaus, for 
whom the palace was built. It was here 
that William I., with the help of his 
generals, developed those plans for the 
reorganisation of the Prussian army 
which indirectly affected, in so great 
a degree, the fortunes of Germany. 

At the southern end of the square in 
which the castle stands are the Royal 
Sfables, now converted into Ariitlery 
Barracks. Beyond them is Mainzer 
Thor, with the beautiful Barbara 
Fountain close by; while, at the N.W. 
corner of the square (Clemens Pl.)i 
are the Posl Office and the Stadt 
Theater, the latter containing the 
municipal Picture Gallery, which 
consists of some 200 paintings by 
minor Dutch artists &c. 

Passing through Post St., north- 
wards, we reach Goben PI., taking its 
name from the statue of General von 
Goben with which it is embellished. 

At the extreme N.E. of the town rises 
the celebrated Castorkirche, before the 
western front of which stands Castor

Fountain, erected by the French in 1812 
to commemorate Napoleon's entry into 
Moscow, and bearing an inscription 
added by the Russian General, St. Priest, 
"Vu et approuve". 

The church itself is a 12th cent. 

basilica with four towers and a beau- 

t ful choir facing towards the quay. 

The original building was founded 

in 836, and dedicated to St. Castor: 

present edifice contains two Gothic 

3S of Archbishops of Treves and 

e good modern frescoes ; while 

vaulting of the Gothic nave is 

worth attention. 

le church is rich in historical 
:iations. It was founded by 
ivig the Pious, whose sons, a few 
'« later (842), met in the building 

to discuss the division of thejr father's 
kingdom and negotiate the terms of 
the Peace of Verdun whereby the 
boundaries of Germany, France and 
Lorraine were determined. Moreover, 
it was here that Conrad III. was elected 
Emperor in 1438, the opening year 
of Germany's Augustan period. 

The spot was accordingly well 
chosen for the erection of the colossal 
monument of William the Great, to 
whom modern Germany is indebted for 
having extended and defined her bound- 
aries. The statue stands right at the 
tip of the sharp tongue of land, called, 
"Deutsches Ecli*, where the Moselle 
meets the Rhine. In order to enlarge the 
base, an embankment was constructed, 
and walls, 1160 feet in length, were

built: from these rises a long flight 
of steps surrounded, at the top, by a 
fine colonnade. In the centre, there is 
an enormous pedestal with the words 
^Wilkclm dem Grossen*' carved in 
large characters above a gigantic relief 
of the imperial eagle. The whole of the 
substructure and interstructure was 
designed by Bruno Schmitz and con- 
sists of granite and basalt. The eques- 
trian statue of the Emperor himself is 
of beaten copper, and rises to a height 
of 46 feet: it is accompanied by a fine 
genius bearing the imperial crown, 
its designer being Emil Hundriser. 
The entire structure forms perhaps 
the grandest of purely personal monu- 
ments in the whole world. 

Another noteworthy building is the 
Kaufhaus at the further end of Mosel St 
from Deutschen Eck. It was converted 
into a Rathaus in 1479 and, having 
been restored in 1668, now serves 
as a school (Real Gymnasium). Close 
by are the Schoffenhaus, containing 
collections of Roman and Prankish 
antiquities, and the Florcncckirche, 
a IZ^"^ cent, edifice with a Gothic choir. 
Beyond the Kaufhaus is the old 
-'ictoral Castft built in 1276 and 
ring addition^ made principally in 
16th century among which the 

wer-steps call for especial attention. 
Stands at the head of Moselle 

ridge, erected in 1344 and leading 

:ro8s to the timber-docks and Liitzel- 

A few paces southwards from 

lorencekhrche stands the Liehfrauen- 

kirche, built in the 16th cent: its nave 
is Romanesque, its choir Gothic. 

South of the oastle, PCsffeBdorfer 
Brfieke spans the Rhine in three large 
arches. Along the banks of the i iver from 
this spot to Rorehhrlmer BrSoke, there 
is a pretty promenade, whioh waslaid-ont 
by order of the late Empress Aagosta, 
whose statue embellishes the spot. 

Across the Rhine and oonneoted with 
Coblence by a bridge of boats, lies 

(POP.: 6,600). Its great point ot interest 
is the celebrated Fortress of Bbrembreit- 
steitty built, in 1826, on tbe spot where an 
elder one had stood that dated back 
to a very early period. Tickets of ad- 
mission (50 pi) must be purchased in the 
town, visitors being then accompanied 
by a noncommissioned officer: the view 
obtained from the fortress includes the 
valley of the Rhine from Andernach to 
Stolzenfels; while the nearer heights of 
tbe Eitel Range are also visible. To 
the N. of the fortress is Nellenkopfy 
the finest point of view in the 
more immediate neighbourhood of the 
town. Southwards of Bhrenbreitstein 
is Forst Astersteia with, olose by, an 
obelisk which aflforda a prospect quite 
eqaal to that from Ehrenbreitstein. (No 
permission required).

EMS is one of the most renowned 
spas of Germany. It is situated on 
the Lahn and its antiquity is attested 
by the fact that the Romans built, on 
the spot, two castles and at least one 
bath, the remains of which have been 
found, within recent years, on the left 
bank of the stream close to the springs. 
The first mention of the town as a 
health-resort occurs in documents of 
the 12tii cent.; while, in a manuscript 
of 1355, a reference is made to "Das 
warme Bad bei Eymetz*'. The growth 
of the place, until it passed into the 
possession of Prussia, in 1866, was 
very gradual; but since then, the 




3429 =.==, BAD EMS = 



development has been very rapid. 
Doubtless, the annual visit paid to the 
spa by the Emperor William I., Irom 
1867 to 1887, did much to foster the 
rise of the town into its present leading 
place among the health-resorts of Ger- 
many. The celebrity of the spa, indeed, 
received a great impulse from the rcH- 
contre which occurred, in its prome- 
nade, between the King of Prussia and 
Benedetti, the French ambassador. 

But these circumstances were in no 
wise necessary to raise the rank of Ems 
I spa. Its magnificent position, 
ne of the most beautiful valleys 
yermany, within a short distance 
le Rhine and the Moselle, renders 
most agreeable place to stay at. 
sover, its situation, at a height of 
ft* above the sea-level and amid 
itains clad from foot to summit 
* *' jbtful woods or with vine- 

yards and orchards, lends it a mild 
but not enervating climate. Refreshing 
breezes of a light character blow 
across from the hills and forests even 
in the warmest summer weather. 

Ems stretches for a distance of nearly 
two miles along the river Lahn: the 
greater part of it is situated on the 
right bank, and creeps round the foot 
of Baderberg Hill and up the side 
valleys. It has a permanent pop. of 
about 6,800: the number of visitors 
annually is 26,000, of whom 12,000 
come to take the waters, the remaining 
14,000 being tourists. 

The centre of attraction is naturally 
the Royal Kurhaus, It was built 
in the 18*^ century, and has been 
enlarged several times to cope with 
the ever-increasing number of guests. 
A colonnade leads to the Kursaal, 
which is situated in the Pavilion

In the Kursaal, a continuous round 
of entertainments is kept up during 
the season, which lasts from the first 
of May to the end of Sept. or later, 
according to the weather: symphony 
& other concerts, reunions &. balls &c. 
take place in the Saa); while, in the 
garden, concerts are given thrice daily 
by the Kurhaus Band of 50 members 

conducted by Mr. Irrgang oiCoblence. 
Besides the various fire- work displays, 
corsos and Venetian fetes in the garden, 
an imperial regatta is arranged at the 
beginning of the month of July. 

Six thermal springs (280— 44*3^ C), 
under the Royal Prussian Administra- 
tion, are used for drinking purposes,

All these springs have recently 
undergone great improvement. Prom

balustrade of granite and syenite, 
leads down to the spring, and the 
waters ^re supplied to the public

tg thus obviated, 
wo other springs, the BubenqueUt, 

and the Neuquelle, are employed for

Besides these, another state spring 
is in use, namely the chalybeate 
spring called StahlquelU. 

Finally, there is the Rotmer-QuclU 
(43*80 C), situated in the Roemerbad 
on the left bank of the Lahn. It is 
the private property of Mr. C. Ruecker,

given above, all the springs are 
thermal except the Stahlquelle and, ac- 
cording to the analysis of Professor 
Fresenius,are roughly equal in muriates 
of sodium. The curative effects are 
excellent in all catarrhal affections of 
the mucous membrane, diseases of 
the respiratory, digestive and urinary 
organs and of the female sexual organs, 
as well as in gout and rheumatism. 

Above the town rises Malbers Hill, 
about 1,100 feet in height. Pleasant and 
easy roads lead ap the slope; but a rope 
railway may be used if preferred. The 
height is coyered with magnificent beech- 
woods; and the sammit, which is crowned 
with a outlook-tower, affords a fine view 
of the district. A similar prospect is 
also offered by the Bdmerthurm on 
Winterberg, the hill lying to the E. of 
Halberg. Across the river, to the right, 
is seen the B&derlei, a stem and rugged 
mass of slate in climbing which one passes 
the so-called Hooshlltte and the monu- 
ment to the Franeo-PrasslaB War. The 
hill seen to the left of it is Baderberg. 
Every few weeks, an interesting illumi- 
nation of the Baderlei is instituted by the 
Bath Committee. At various points of 
the mountain are stationed link - boys 
to the number of 600. At a given rocket- 
signal, each lights his Bengal torch and 
clambers down the hilL The various- 
coloured flames oast their light upon 
the moving figures, prodnoing a most 
weird and striking effect 

Betumin;* to the town, the principal 
sights to be noted are the marble 
Statne of William I. and the <*BeBedettt 
Steio". The former is the only statue 
extant of the Emp. William L in civilian 
attire. The Benedetti Stone marks the 
spot where the French ambassador adres- 
sed the King of Prussia on the 18^^ of 
July 1870. 

In the N. W. of the town a flre-oolumn 
has been erected to the memory of Prince 
Bismarck; on the summit a beacon is 
lighted on the l>t April, the anniversary 
of the great chancellor's birthbay.

receiving its mild and equable character 
from the tree-olad hills which encircle 
it The town possesses a hydro* and 
some noteworthy buildings. Of these, 
the mest interesting is the Castle, built

TBETBS (Trier) (POP.t 48,860. - 
HOT.t Porta Nigra). 

TREVES, the civiias iretwrorum of 
the Romans, which has become^ in 
German, Trier, is the oldest city in Ger- 
many. Nestling in a lovely spot among 
vine-clad hills of the Moselle, its build- 
ing of greatest interest is, of course, the 
celebrated Cathedral, to which nearly 
all its streets lead, like the threads of 
a spider's web to the centre. The 
original building, on whose foundation 
the present edifice stands, was a Roman 
basilica dating back, doubtless, to the 
time of the Emperor Valentinian L 
(364—375). The place passed through 
many vicissitudes, being partly de- 
stroyed, first by the Franks and then 
by the Normans: it was renovated by 
Archbishop Poppo and his successors. 
The vaulting of the nave dates from 
the 13*b cent, — the treasury, with 
its cupola, from the 17*^ century. 
The Roman part of the structure will 
be recognised by sandstone and brick 
work, the additions made by Poppo 
being of lime -stone and brick. The 
interior, in which the Prankish capitals 
and Roman arches are easily recognis- 
able, contains monuments of John IlL 
and the Elector Richard III.; while, in 
the treasury, are preserved what arc 
said to be the skulls of the Empress 
Helena & St. Matthew and a nail from 
the cross of Christ. (Entrance to these 
wonders may be obtained on payment 
of 1 mk.). But the most renowned 
reliquus is the *'coat of Christ without 
seam woven from the top throughout" 
and preserved in the High Al 
though rarely exhibited. 

Another veiy interesting chu.. 
the Liebfrauenkirche close by 
Cathedral. It is an early- G( 
structure, the interior supported 
12 columns bepainted with figure: 
the twelve apostles, all. of which 
visible from a block of sla*-^ ' 



iht 6ntraiicd. The building contains 
numerous monuments and a mummy 
of Bishop Theodolph (4th cent.). 

A few paces southwards stands a 
basilica of the 4tb century. Across 
Palast PL and beyond the exceedingly 
interesting Provincial Museum, are 
the ruins of a palace once belonging to 
the Roman emperors and now called 
Kaiser Palast. It stands at the corner 
of Ost-Aliee and SOd-Allee, the latter 
road leading up the hill eastwards^, to 
an * amphitheatre capable of seating 
about 7,000 persons. The building 
was probably erected in the days of 
Trajan. Some other interesting relics 
are the Rofftan Baths at the western 
end of Siid-Allee, and the bridge across 
the Moselle: the main part of the 
structure was built by the Romans, 
only the second and seventh pillars 
being modern. Moreover, in the N.E. 
of the town there is a well-preserved 
Roman gate- way of the 4*h century, 
called Porta Nigra: the structure has 
additions made in the 1 1th cent. 

Treves lie* in the great wine-growisg 
district of the Moselle. Amooff the 
most celebrated f^rowers are Messrs. 
Kfihlwein & Go. (whose wines enjoy a 
high repute), and the well-known nrm 
of Messrs. Bud. & Wm. Manoher whose 
head-quarters are at Neuatadt o/Haardt.

LUXEMBURG is the capital of the 
Grand Duchy of the same name, a 
small independent state lying between 
Germany and Belgium with its S.W. 
comer touching the boundary of 
France (see introduction to Germany), 
city has a mixed population, 
common medium of intercourse 

being I^rench. The upper -town lied 
on a rocky plateau, the lower- town 
in the valley of the Petrusse. Its 
situation among rugged rocks and 
varied plantations, its enormous via- 
ducts, and its wooded hills to the 
N. E. present a most beautiful and 
striking aspect. A good idea of the 
city is obtained by a walk round the 
Ring which encircles the greater part 
of the place and commands views of 
the old ramparts as well as of the 
two fine valleys through which the 
Petrusse and the Alzette flow. 

From the station we cross the 
PetrusseValley to the Brucken Ring and 
follow Konigsring to Hotel Brasseur 
and through Amalia St into the 
Plantations, where stands a monu- 
ment to Princess Amalia. Keeping to 
the right, we come to the Pescatore 
Alms Houses, near which there is a 
fine view across the deep valley of 
the Alzette. Having walked rqund the 
grounds of the institute, we pass to 
the left and visit the Three Towers, 
proceeding thence along the Neuen- 
weg to Schlossbriicke whose arches, 
superposed one upon another, span 
the Pfaffenthal near the famous Bock. 
The Bock is a cliff remarkable for 
its casemates and bearing the ruins 
of the old castle. 

A road to the right leads aeross the 
Brtlokenring to Constitution PL which 
affoids a fine view of the Petrusse 
Valley and the new Adolphbrfloke. 
This bridge consists of two small arches 
at either end and a magnificent middle 
arch haviDg a span ox 84 metres — 
the largest hitherto executed in stone. 
The whole is a remarkably bold struc- 
ture designed by Bodange. Following 
now the tramway lines » we come to 
WilhehnsPL embellished with a statue of 
William II. (a master-pieoe by Mercier).

METZ, the capital of German 
Lothringen (Lorraine) has a civil pop. 
of some 60,(XX). The city is strongly 
fortified, and is occupied by a garrison 
of 20,000 Prussian, Saxon & Bavarian 
soldiers. It lies in an extensive valley 
on the banks of the Moselle, which 
here spreads out into various arms. 
Originally a settlement of the Gauls, 
it became, in the 9*^1 cent., an inde- 

pendent city of the German empire: 
in 1556 it was ceded to France and 
remained French till 1871. 

The finest of its many noteworthy 
buildings is the Cathedral, An \m- 
posing Gothic structure built diiring 
the 13*^ and 14^^ centuries and pos- 
sessing a choir added 1(X) years later. 
Both the nave and the tower are 
exceptionally high, the latter 400 ft. 
Most of the monuments formerly con* 
tained in the interior were demolished 
during the French revolution ; ^••'t

and transept being H^h^ 15th and 
I6tb cent. work. The font is an 
ancient Roman bath. 

Opposite the Cathedral is the Stadt- 
haus, containing a small Museum. 
Northwards of the Cathedral stand 
the Theatre and the Government 
Buildings. A bridge to the N. E. 
of th£ latter leads across to Vmzenz St. 
in which Vinzenzkirche, a handsome 
13th cent, building, in Gothic style and 
with Roman remains, is worth visiting. 
Not far from the Stadthaus, at the 
corner of Geisberg and Bibliothek St., 
stands the Library: it contains some 
valuable historical collections, and a 
few Roman antiquities.* Adjacent to 
it is the old Austrasian Palace, 
erected in 1599 on the spot where a 
former Roman palace had stood, and 
built, indeed, partly of the ruins. (In 
the i^ and 8tb centuries, Metz was 
the capital of Austrasia). 

In the S. E. part of the city stand 
the churches of Notre Dame and 
St, Martin — the latter near one end 
of Esplanade St. At the other end of 
this street rises the Palace of Justice, 
formerly the residence of the French 
governor. Beyond it, in Bouffler's 
Garden, there is a fine bronze statue 
of Prince Frederick Carl of Prussia, 
raised in memory of his great victory 
of 1870. The middle Esplanade is 
embellished with an equestrian statue 
of the Emperor William 1. 

The battle-fields to the E. and W. of 
the city require several hours inspection 
to be appreciated. They are very exten- 
sive and interesting, the most important 
spot to visit being, of course, Grave- 
lotte, which lies about 5 miles W. of 
city. From this spot, when the 
le began on the 16th oi Aug., 
main body of the German army 
jad about 2 miles S. to Bois de 
4X, and N. to St, Marie, where 
bent W., past St, Privat and 
cours; the principal French army 
g, of course, along the heights 
wards. The 3Pd and IQth German 
ps, at Bois de Vaux, and the 2°d and 


7th corps, posted at Gravelotte, shut

its I The RHINE from COBLENCE 








STOLZEBTFEiiS. Some 5 miles be- 
yond Coblence lies -the little hamlet 
of CAPBLLBN (Hoi.: Btolienfels ; 
BelleTve) overlooked, from a height 
of 310 feet, by the proud CASTLE OF 
STOLZENFELS. The original building 
was a very ancient one, and was 
replaced, in 1259, by a fortress 
erected by Archbishop Arnold of 
Treves. This edifice having been re- 
duced to a ruin by the French in 
1689, it was restored by Schinkel in 
1823 for the Crown Prince Frederick 
William, and is now the property of 
the Emperor William 11. (Tickets to 
view the Castle, 25 pf.). Apart from 
the valuable frescoes it contains, it 
also affords a fine prospect of the 
Rhine and the valley ot the Lahn. 
The best point of view, however, is 
from Augusta Hohe above the Castle 
(IV4 hours). 

HOT.: Weller; Lmhneek), at the moath 
of the Lahn : it is principally indastriaJ, 
and possesses considerable docks. Its 
Bathsas, a late-Gothic straotare with 
projecting gables, is well worth seeing^. 
At one end of the town is Schloes 
Martinsbnrir) a Uth cent, bailding which 
was formerly the castle of the Electors 
of Mayence. A quarter of an hour 
distant stands the old Castle of Lahneek, 
with its fine tower crowning a high 
and overhanging rock: it was once the 
residence of the Electors of Mnyeuce, 
and is first mentioned in the year 12-2 . 
Having been almost demolished by the 


Siolzenfels Castle and Chapeh 

French in 1B89, it has, in recent years, 
been rebuilt and rendered habitable. 

The Lahn is one of the most im- 
portant tributaries of the Bhine. In 
its valley lie the celebrated spa of Ems 
and the small but important town of 
Nftssan. (See route 27 b). 

BHEBTSiHOT.: KSnigstnlil), a village 
retaining its medisBval aspect and pos-

About 10 minutes below the hamlet 
stands the Konigstabl, a building wbich 
had gone to rum, but was re-erected in 
1848, the principal materifils used being 
the old fallen stones. The edifice stanus at 
the spot where the Electorates of Cologne, 
Treves and Mayence touch one another; 
and the spot whs consequently chosen as 
a meeting-place for the Electors, bence 
its name, which means the King's Sl<»at. 

BRAVBACH (POP.: 2,t00. - HOT.: 
Kftiserliof) is a centre for some delight- 
ful excursions, one of the best of which 
is to Dachskopf '2Va hrs.). Above Brau- 
baoh, On a rock 500 feet in height, rises 
the well-preserved Castle of Harksbarg : 
it is, indeed, the only fortress on the 
Bhine wbich has escaped the ravages of 
time and war. 

BOPPARD (POP.: 6,000. — HOT.: 
Spiegel) is frequented by a large number 
ot visitors on account of its picturesque 
f-ituation and interesting buildings. Of 

these latter the most noteworthy is the 
Pfsrrkirche, with its two towers and 
choir (I2th cent.): the decoration of the 
interior has been recently restored in 
excellent taAte. Another old Church is 
Karmeliterkirehey a Gothio building 
(13lH). On the banks of the Bhine, and 
close to the ferry, stands the old Elec- 
toral Castle. Other buildings within the 
town are the Franziskaner'Kloster, the 
remains of the Tempelhof in Seiten (^asse 
and St. Martin's Kloster, 

Above the town, in Honsraeker Bead, 
stands the old Harienbeig, formerly a 
Benedictine convent, now a hydro.

been greatly increased by the national {

consists of two parts, — the Neustadt, 
lying on the left bank of the Nahe, 
and the Altstadt, on the right bank, 
the two sections being joined by a 
bridge, from which a picturesque 
view is obtained. This bridge is an 
old stone structure supporting a 
number of dwelling-houses and em- 
bellished with a cross and a statue 
of St. Nepomuk. 

Among other sights of the place is 
the Pauluskirche, built on the site 
of the old edifice demolished by the 
French in 1689; the ruins of the choir 
have been preserved in the English 
Church. The school in Kreuz St. 
contains the Museum of the Anti- 
quarian Society. There is a column 
to ^Bismarck on Bismarck PI. An- 
other monument — a spirited sculpture 
by Cauer — depicts Michel Mort the 
butcher, saving his country's ruler, 
Count John of Sponheim, who has 
been wounded in battle against the 
Archbishop of May ence. In 1893, ex- 
cavations in HUjffelsheinter Ckaussee 
revealed an excellently - preserved 
mosaic floor: it is Roman work re- 
presenting fighting gladiators. 

But the centre of attraction is, 
naturally, the 'Kurhaus', with its beauti- 
ful Park : the latter is delightfully laid 
out with gardens and fountains, and 
embellished with avenues. During the 
season, an excellent band, consisting 
of 40 musicians, plays thrice daily, the 
moving throng of listeners presenting 
a most motley aspect. At one end 
of the Park is the Elisabeth Quelle, 
which is the principal spring, and 
rises beneath a tasteful tabernacle. 

The sprmgs are seventeen in 
number, of which three are strongly 
saline, the Oranien Quelle contain-

Some of them rise naturally

MAYENCE, a strongly fortified city 
opposite the mouth of the Main, 
is a celebrated old place containing 
numerous quaint and beautiful build- 

The Cathedral, near the centre of 
the old town, dates back, in its 
main parts, to the 11*1\ century, the 
western portion of the transept, with 
the large dome, the principal choir, 
and a few other parts, having been 
added in 1239. Its most interesting 
points are the main porch, with 
bronze doors of the 10^1^ cent., and

the group of towers and turrets. 
Moreover, the vaulting of the interior, 
supported upon 56 pillars, produces 
a deep sense of solemnity. There 
are also numerous tombs and monu- 
ments, the principal of them belong- 
ing to the 16 th cent. The transept 
contains, among other interesting 
statues, SchivantkaJer*s Frauenlob, a 
marble monument to the minnesinger 
Heinrich von Meissen. 

A little to the S.W. of the Markt, 
where an old fountain (1626) stands, 
is Gutenberg PL, named after the 
great printer and embellished with 
his statue, executed in 1837 by Thor- 
waldsen. The Gutenberg Museum 
was opened 1901. 

The north-western side of the square 
is occupied by the Theatre; while, 
south westwards, is a square adorned 
with a statue of Schiller, from which 
it takes its name. 

Along the banks of the Rhine runs 
one of the finest promenades of this 
famous stream, well -planted with 
trees and having a large number of 
steamboat piers and several bathing- 
places. At its south-eastern end is 
the large Military Hospital: right 
in the middle of the promenade 
is situated the Stadthalle, containing 
one of the largest saloons of Ger- 
many: some distance beyond it, and 
opposite the head of the bridge, is 
the Armory and the Grand- Ducal 
Palace ; whije between Schlossthor 
and Kaiserthor rises the Electoral 
Palace, now in course of renovation 
at a cost of 900,000 mks. This fine 
building is the depository of some 
valuable collections, namely, Roman 
and Teutonic Antiquities, a Picture 
Gallery and a Library, The first 
of these is very extensive and valu- 
able, among the picture^s being not 
a few that are well worth seeing: 
the most striking specimens are works 
by Jan Steen, Ruysdael, Dirk Hals, 

Jordaens, Dtirer, Teniers, Mabuie 
and Thorwaldsen. The Library ia 
open Wed. and Sat. 9—4 o'clock 
and on other days, 9 — 1 o'clock. It 
contains 180,000 volumes, including 
4,500 incunabula by Gutenberg, Fust, 
Schoffer &c. 

In Grosse Bleiehe, at the eastern 
corner is the Concerthaus der Lieder- 
iafel, built by Ch. Riihl and con- 
taining large restaurant: half-way up 
the street there is a fine fountain. 
Passing out of Schloss PL northwest- 
wards, we reach Kaiser Si, lined 
with a splendid avenue, and containing 
the noteworthy Christuskirche and 
the Imperial Bank, 

Most of the finest buildings, how- 
ever, lie in the southern part of the 
town (Altstadt). Next to those al- 
ready mentioned, the most important 
are the following:— 

Johannes Kirche, a little to the 
S.W. of the Cathedral ; northwards, 
across Bishop PI., stands the Epis- 
copal Palace: St Quintin*s Church, 
in Schuster St. Outside the city, to 
the S., stands the Citadel, in whose 
S.W. corner rises an old Roman 
tower called the Eigelstein, and bear- 
ing also the name of Drususthurm, 
after the general in commemoration 
of whose death here in A. D. 9 it 
was erected. 

Mayence is an important industrial 
centre possessing very extensive 
champagne cellars and doing a brisk 
trade in preserves, leather, beer &c. 
It has direct communication with 
Darmstadt, Frankfort o. M., Wies- 
baden &c. 

Near the Central Station are the 
offices of the "Auskunftsbureau fur 
Fremde", 60 Schiller St:, where 
Americans and others may ob

WORMS, now a thriving industrial I Sf, PauVs Church and St. Paul's 

town, was once a free and imperial 
city in which the emperors were 
crowned, and it still contains nume- 
rous tokens of former days« 
The principal sights are: — 
-The Cathedral of St. Peter, a 
magnificent specimen of Romanesque 
architecture, and a striking struc- 
ture with a long nave and transept, 
' towers , two cupolas , two 
irs and a grand porch. The 
idations were probably laid in 
9th cent. ; but the main building, 
ibed to Bishop Burkhard, is 

century work. 
'. Martin's and St. Andrew's, 
Romanesque churches, likewise 
ig back to Bishop Burkhard*s day. 

Museum contain interesting col- 
lections including a unique Luther 

The Church of Our Lady (Lieb- 
frauenkirche) , at the extreme N. of 
the town, is a late-Gothic edifice of 
exceptional grace and beauty, which 
has recently undergone a thorough 
restoration: its porch is embellished 
with figures representing the wise 
and foolish virgins. 

Around the church is grown the 
celebrated wine known as Lleb- 
fraumllch , the largest vineyards 
being the property of Messrs. P. J. 
Valckenberg, Limited. The firm 
was founded in the year 1786; 
and it is chiefly owing to their 


cultivation and care that the Lieb- 
fraumilch wines have grown so 
famous. In the course of their 
long existence Messrs. Valckenberg 
have become the owners of the 
finest vineyards of the district, in^ 
eluding the **Klostergarten" and the 
"Luginsland"; the former produces 
the best Liebfraumilch , — the 
latter is a very famous hill that 
shuts in Worms to the south and 
yields some of the most delicious 
wines of the Rhine. 

The Synagogue, with the Raschi- 
kapelle, is a very interesting llth cent, 
building in Romanesque style. 

But perhaps the greatest attrac- 
tion of Worms is its connection 
with Luther, who, summoned be- 
fore the diet here, uttered the 
memorable words **f>ier ftelje id^, 
id? fanii nic^t anbers, (Sott Ijelfe mir, 
2lmcn !'* The statue of the great 
reformer will be found close to the 
Neue Thor. 

Finally, there are the Trinity and 
Friedrich Churches, the Bismarck 
Monument, the Ludwig Monument 
and the two handsome bridges that 
span the Rhine.

MANNHEIM is the second town 
in the Grand Duchy of Baden. It 
lies at the confluence of the Neckar 
with the Rhine. The inner town 
is built in squares and surrounde^i 
by boulevards that form, as it were^ 
an ar^h, with its base r^isting 
upon the Schlossgarten (that shuts it 
off from the Rhine) and its crown 
touching the Neckar, where a bridge 
joins it with Ried Station and the 
Neckar Garden. The whole area 
contains 21 numbered and lettered 
blocks with 10 streets running 
horizontally to the base and 1 1 
vertically. Lines of electric tramvi'^ay 
cross the town in two directions, 
the one from the Neckar Bri.ige 
to the Grand Ducal Schloss (Palace), 
the other joining the Rheinthor 
to VVasserthurm , where it turns to 
the right and runs down to the 
chief railway station, a large and

decorated with frescoes by Linden- 
schmidt. From the northern side of 
the church, we pass through Stein 
Gasse to the head of the old bridge 
with its ancient gateway and towers: 
it is embellished with a statue of 
the Elector Carl Theodor under 
whom, in 1786, it was erected: the 
figures round the pedestal represent 


theRhifte, XheNeckar, the Danube and 
the Moselle. Another statue is that of 
Minerva, also surrounded with alle- 
gorical figures. From the bridge, 
an admirable view of the river and 
its banks is obtained. On the 
northern bank is the Heiligenberg: 
down the river we get a glimpse of 
the new bridge; while, on the left 
hand, is Gaisherg^ surmounted by 
a Belvedere: * southeastwards , the 
grand ruins of the Old Castle over- 
look the town. 

This CASTLE (Schloss) may be 
reached, either by the rope railway 
from Korn Markt Station (35 pf.), 
or by cab (2 pers. 2.50 mks., 4 pers. 
3 mks., for single fare, the return 
fare being 4 *mks., irrespective of 
number): pedestrians may take a 
pleasant and easy road from the 
Korn Markt or from St. Peter's 

Church: a third route, via Burg- 
weg, is shorter and shadier, but 
somewhat steep. 

The tariff for viewing the Castle 
and the almost as celebrated great 
tun is, for 1 pers., 1 mk., for 2 or 
3 pers., 1.50 mk., for every add'f 
person 50 pf. 

This once lordly castle, still magni- 
ficent in decay, stands upon a 
wooded projection of the Konig- 
stuhli and dates back, doubtless, to 
the days of Conrad von Hohen- 
staufen. But the various buildings 
of which it' consists wefe added 
principally by Rupert III. (1400), 
Frederick I. and Ludwig V. (1544}; 
and, indeed, the building was not com- 
-pleted until the reign of Frederick V., 
son-in-law of James I. of Ertgland, 
During the Thirty Years' War, it 
suffered some slight damage; but it

was from the troops of Louis XIV. 
of France that it received its most 
serious injuries. Under Qouni Melac, 
they besieged both town and castle, 
and, on the 2nd March 1689, blasted 
the fortifications. Four years later, 
after the capitulation of Heidersdorf, 
both town and castle were re- 
duced to little better than a heap 
of stones and ashes. The stout 
walls of the Castle, however, still 
remained almost intact, and, under 
Carl Philip, partial restorations were 
undertaken; but, since the Castle 
was struck by lightning in 1764, 
no further attempts have been 
made to render it again habitable, 
and the wonderful ruins now stand, 
a sad witness recalling the eventful 
centuries during which the Castle 


As we approach them from the 
Castle grounds we obtain an ex- 
cellent view of the two groups 
into which they fall. On the western 
and southern sides, is the simple 
Gothic building erected, chiefly, by 
Ludwig v.; while, to the N. and 
W., stand the richly decorated Re- 
naissance , erections. The parts of 
the first groups — ascribed to Lud- 
wig — are situated on the eastern 
side of the court-yard, and may be 
recognised by a tower with wind*"'" 
stair-way as well as by the coal 
arms. Attached to this part are 
ancient offices, such as the kitch 
slaughter - houses, bake - houses i 
and, finally, the barrack rooi 
with a picturesque Gothic hall i 
a wall. The parts added by Rup 
are marked by a fine imperial e'

From the court -yard, one also 
olitnins a glimpse of the Library, of 
which but slight remains still exist: 
in this part of the building, the ladies' 
apartments were also situated ; and 
a large drawing-room devoted to 
them is still sometimes used. 

The second group contains the 
so-called \^lass saloon* (erected by 
Krederick IL, in the 16*h cent.) as well 
as the additions made by Otto Heinrich, 
a few years later, and the buildings 
of Frederick I. and Frederich'V,: the 
last is termed "Der englische Ban", 
The buildings, erected by Otto Heinrich 
(1556) form, perhaps, the finest spe- 

cimen of early German Renaissance 
architecture extant. The lowest 
floor is occupied by the Kaisersaal 
and the living apartments of the 
electors. In these rooms, there is a 
collection of antiquities and works of 
art among which may be mentioned 
a series of portraits including those 
of Tilly, General Milac, Luther 
(Kranach the elder), Melanchthon 
(Kranach the younger), Prince Henry 
of Orange Nassau with consort

To obtain a good view across the so- 
called English Building, with its simple 
and clear Renaissance characteristics, 
it is advisable to ascend the Altan 
which affords a magnificent outlook 
in varioud directions. 

Between it and the Englischer Bau 
is the Gothic 'Fassbau*, erected by 
Johann Casimir (1591). The Great 
Tun, lying within it, was built under 
Karl Theodor, in 1751, and is capable 
of conta'ning 221,726 litres: like its 
predecessors, it is regarded as sym- 
bolic of the town of Heidelberg. 

From the GlocheMihurm (Belfry 
Tower), a view of the fortifications 
is to be had: from the top, one per- 

ceives how precipitously the hiil falls 
away on three sides, the castle being 
aj5proachable only from the S.; here, 
a moat, spanned by a bridge and 
guarded by a tower 180 ft. in height, 
was formed. The eastern side was 
protected by three towers, namely:— 
the so-called Blasted Tower, the ivy- 
mantled Apothecary's Tower and 
the Belfry Tower. These were once 
joined by double walls; while, to 
complete the fortification, the ** Dicker 
Tfittrm'* (broad tower) was erected 
on the western side. 

Opposite the castle stands the 
Bismarck Column. In the surrounding 
park, there is a Monument to 
Scheffel: the spot where it stands 
is called **Scheffel Blick" and affords 
a good* view of the Neckar. Another 
celebrated prospect is that from

SPIRES (Palatinate) & STRASBURG. 


The Palatinate is one of the love- 
Uest, mqst favoured, and most fertile 
distdctii of Germany. 

The picturesque Haardt Mts. and 
the wildly romantic spurs of the 
Vosges enclose valleys of infinite 
charm; while their numerous summits, 
crowned with ruins or rugged rocks, 
command most delightful panoramic 
views. The Palatinate Mts., with their 
glorious woods, form one of the 
most beautiful chains in Germany; 
and the Palatinate Forest, with its 
oaks and beeches, its pines and 
its firs, is one of the largest and 
grandest of its kind. The Palatinate 
is rich in picturesque ruins, of which 
it possesses some 140, a number 
scarcely rivalled by any other district 
of similar dimensions.

NEUSTADT is an ancient town 
situated in the midst of the vine- 
yards of the Palatinate and sur- 
ded by most beautiful scenery, 
g the junction of the railway 
. from the Rhine and Berlin to 
zerland and Italy and enjoying 
t celebrity for its delicious wines, 
>rms the centre of the Palatinate 

h the immediate and the more environs afford numberless and 
'-^ful excursions; and, from spring 

to .autumn, thousands of tourists 
gather here every Sunday. 

The town is justly styled **the 
Pearl of the Palatinate". Indeed, 
Neustadt and the encircling heights, 
dotted everywhere with castles, man- 
sions and villages, spanned by a 
clear blue' sky and adorned with 
blossom or fruit, forms a sight not 
easily to be matched. 

SPIBES (POP.: 20,000. — BOTBLt 
Wlttelsbaelier Hof), ceded to Germany, 
"on account of its wines*', by the 
Treaty of Verdun, is celebrated as 
the town before whose diet Luther, 
in 1529, made his famous declaration 
of dissent from the decree of 
Charles V., his adherers then re- 
ceiving the denomination > of Pro- 
testant The place is equally re- 
nowned for its old Cathedral, a 
magnificent Romanesque edifice dating 
back to the 11th cent., it having 
been founded by Emp. Conrad II. 
The building has two cupolas and 
four towers, the western one being 
nearly 240 feet high. Tlie ascent 
of the towers and a stroll through 
the colonnade that encompasses the 
building are recommended. The 
interior contains some grand fres- 
coes by Schrandolph, some late- 
Gothic reliefs, and an interesting 
crypt A large number of monarchs 
have been interred in the cathedral, 
,such as Conrad II. (1039), Henry III. 
(1066), Henry V. (1125). The church- 
yard, too, is worth visiting. It pos- 
sesses a large sandstone howl, which 
every new bishop was required to 
fill with wine, that the citizens might 
drink his health. 

At the other end of the town, 
in Augustiner St., is the ''Museum 
Pfalzischer Altertiimer" (Antiquities 
of the Palatinate) a good collection, 
deposited, together with a number 
of paintings, in the Real Schule. 
At the end of Maximilian St. is Alt 
Portel, an old and beautiful tower. 
At the ' end of Juden Gasse is a 
13th cent. Judenbad.

3d: From STRASBURS via 
(see also roites 33, 34 &c.). 

From Strasburg southwards, the 
country becomes more and more 
mountainous in character. The only 
flat - district is the narrow strip of 
land lying between the Rhine and 
the III and traversed by the Rhone 
Canal. At the southern end of this 
tract of country, the ever-narrowing 
Rhine Valley turns sharply eastwards, 
and the offshoots of the Alps begin. 
From Carlsruhe to Bale, the western 
border of this valley is formed by the 


heights of the Black Forest; while 
a similar range of mountains to the 
W. of the 111 runs from Belfort 
throughout Alsace into the southern 
part of the Bavarian Palatinate. These 
are the celebrated Vosges. They 
constitute the modem boundary 
between Germany and France, and 
are connected with the Jura Mts. by 
the Pass of. Belfort. The range is 
divided into three parts, viz., the 
Higher Vosges, stretching northwards 
to the Valley of the Leber and con- 
taining the Great Belchen, (4,677 feet), 
the Middle Vosges, as far as the 
Marne Canal, and the Lower Vosges 
reaching to Queich. 

The last two ranges are sandstone 
formations best visited from Stras- 
burg: the Higher Vosges are of 
granite, and lying to the W. of Colmar 
and Mulhausen, contain a number ot 
famous 'heights and passes.

due to the proximity of extensive

as well as to the constant breezes 
which blow from the mountains. A 
porous soil and an excellent supply of 
spring-water also conduce to render 
the place exceedingly healthy. 

At the station-end of the town there 
is a park known as the H err engarten. 
In the market-place stands a tower 
of the old fortifications. Other inter- 
esting buildings are: — the Rathaus, 
containing interesting antiquities; the 
Catholic Church (15th cent.); and

CARLSRUHE, the capital of the 
Grand Duchy of Baden is a beau- 
tiful and regularly-built town situated 
among lorest - lands some 5 miles 
from the Rhine and on the skirts 
of the Black Forest. It was founded, 
in 1715, by the Margrave - Carl 
William of Baden Durlach , who 
erected a wooden chateau here among 
the woods, through which he had 
roads cut in all directions. Round 
the castle , and at a distance of 
about 1,3C)0 feet, a ring -promenade 
was formed , which gives to the 
place, on the map, the appearance 
of a sun, the roads forming the 
rays. The fifteen roads south of 
Moltke St. and Rindheimer .^llee 
run through the town: the fifteen 
to the north dissect Hardt Forest 
and Fasanen Garten (Pheasant Garden). 
The former of these is one ot the 
most beautiful of its kind; while the 
latter is of great interest. 

The present castle was built by 
Carl Frederick in 1754: its splendid 



Apartments contain a number of 
notable objects, the principal being 
those of the Z&hringer Museum. 
The stables and a high tower are 
also open to the public. Close by- 
are the Schlosskirche , the Hof- 
theater, and the Winter Garden, 
Between the last two are situated 
the Botanical Garden and the Orange 
House. Next comes the 

Kunsthalle, containing extensive 
collections of paintings, the most 
valuable of which are those hung in 
room I and cabinet 8, and belonging 
respectively to the Dutch and modern 
German schools. Of interest are the 
pictures representing the local schools 
of Alsace and Svvabia. 

To the left of the building stands 
the palace of Prince William: while 
close to the royal stables is the 
treasury. In the middle of Schloss 
PI. rise* a bronze statue of Carl 
Frederick, from designs by Schwann 
thaler; hence, through Karl Friedrich 
St, we reach the Markt Pi., where 
an artificial hill, called the Pyramid, 
affords a good view of the town, 
^cross Markt PI. runs the principal 
thoroughfare, named Kaiser St., 
closed at one end by a statue of the 
Emp, William J., and, at the other, 
by the Catholic Church. Passing 
down Karl Friedrich St., we reach 
the Rondel, where the residence of 
the Margrave stands; close by, at 
Friedrich PL, is a museum entitled 
"Gebdude der vereinigten gross- 
herz, Sammlungen^' : the building 
contains archaeological and anthro- 
pological collections, with mediseval 
weapons, art objects, stone monu- 
ments &c.

called the Albthal-Bahn, runs up the 
beautiful Alb Valley, reaching, in

HERRENALB is a health-resort 
situated in a charming valley- and 
on both sides of the Alb, at a spot 
where several valleys converge to 
form the wide Wiesenihal. Its beau- 
tiful position, surrounded by densely 
wooded heights, offers some most 
delightful strolls and excursions, and 
draws to it, annually, some 3,500 

From Herrenalb the road continues 
via Dohel to Wildbad (see Black 
For. II). Both Frauenalb and Herren- 
alb are situated in the Black Forest. 


This magnificent dbirict — with 
its grand peaks, its vast woodland 
tracts, its charming gkns and ravines, 
and celebrated spas — stretches from 
Bale and Sackingen on the S, to 
Pforzheim and Carlsruhe on the N. 
It is bordered on two sides by the 
Rhine, and, occupying the whole of 
Baden and a part of Wurtemberg, 
forms, perhaps, the finest forest in 
Europe. The district may be ap- 
proached fronj various points. Tourists 
coming from the N. enter it either 
via Baden - Baden or Strasburg end 
Appenweier: those coming from 
Switzerland, travel via Bale or Singen 
and the Black Forest Railway; or, 
if the left bank of the Rhine has been 
followed to Miilhausen, a branch 
of rail is used to Mullheirn (see '

through it flows the Oosbach, from 
whose banks, the tree-clad hiUs which 
protect the town rise to a height of 
between 3,000 and 4,000 feet. 

The climate, though very mild in 
winter, is rendered somewhat bracing 
by the neighbourhood of the moun- 
tains. For the same reason, showers 
are frequent; but the porosity of the 
soil, assisted by the excellent sanitary 
arrangements, rapidly carries off the 
superfluous rain. The close vicinity of 
the pine-woods keeps the atmosphere 
constantly supplied with ozone ; 
while the fertility of the district 
has won for Baden the title or the 
Garden of Gdrmany. In ils varied 

soil flourish the oak and the beech, 
the chestnut and the pine, whose 
changing tints make the early 
Autumn the favourite season for 
visiting the spa. 

The town has a resident population 
of l6,(iC0; and its many attractions 
draw to it no fewer than 60,000 
visitors annually : most of these come, 
of course^ to take the waters, to 
which the place owes its name, their 
efficacious character having been re- 
cognised for several centuries. Their 
main constituents are common salt, 
chloride of Ifthium, calcijm arsenides, 
and silicates. The principal diseases 
treated arc nervous complaints, 



---SEE --- 



affections of the various mucous 
membranes, cctarrh of the bladder, 
female complaints &c. 

The 'TrinTihalle', — recently erected 
in the chief promenade and containirg 
a number of frescoes illustrative of 
legends of the Black Forest, — is visited 
during the early hours of the day, 
when an excellent band plays. In 
front of the building, on a granite 
pedestal, stands a marble bust of the 
Emp. William I. 

Southwards of this spot is the 'Com- 
versation House , a handsome edifice 
erected at the time when gaming was 
still legal, its roulette rooms being 
now used for receptions and the like. 
The building possesses a portico sup- 

ported by eight Corinth an pillars: in 
front of it, there is a band-stand^ in 
which are given morning, afternoon 
and evening concerts; at these periods 
of the day, the grounds become the 
rendezvous of the most aristocratic 
circles; indeed, here, as in most places 
of the kind, the beautiful park and 
gardens of the 'Conversation House* 
form the centre round which life in 
the spa concentrates.

The old university city, with its 
suburbs Wiehre, Herdern, Haslach and 
Giinterstal, has a population of 70,000: 
it is the capital of the Breisgau, the 
residence of the heir-apparent and an 
emporium for the .products of the 
Black Forest; the most important 
industries being the manufacture of 
buttons, silk and cotton goods. Its 
wonderful situation, in a lovely val'ey 
surrounded by vineyards and fertile 
fields, and shut-in by the tree-topped 
heights of the Back Forest, whose 
fretted outline cuts the deep blue sky, 
has gained for it the title of the *'Pearl 
of Breisgau". Though thus protected, 
it has a bracing climate, which, t' - 
gether with the beautiful environs and 
the interesting character of the town 
itself, renders it one of the most 
attractive resorts of the Blaclc Forest. 

The town possesses a quaint me- 
diaeval aspect; and its many ancient 
buildings are architecturally and 
historically interesting. The most not- 
able of them are the following: — 

CIIUBCHES: The Minster, one of the 
handsomest Gothic piles in Germany, 
is built, ior the most part, of glowing 
red sandstone, though its olde&t parts, 
which date back to the 12^^ cent., are 
of yellow sandstone. The main spire — 
over 400 feetUa height, with ltd airy per- 
forated work and delicate tracery — 
is considered by many to be the finest 
in the world. The body of the build- 
inq; consists of a nave and two aisles, 
with a transept surmounted by a 
dome, and a choir surrounded by 
numerous chapels. Among the many 
interesting antiquities and works of 
art contained in the interior, the most 

striking is, perhaps, the altar-piece by 
Hans Holbein the younger (1520) in the 
University Chapel. In the choir is 
another fine altar-piece by Baldung* 
Giien (loll) and also some splendid 
stained glass. In the nave, close to the 
mi Idle column of the porch, there is a 
beautiful early-Gothic Madonna. In the 
aisles, there is some good stain ed»g lass, 
mostly 14*i» cent, work: the left aisle 
contains the so - called Grafenkapelte 
(Count's Chapel) with a representation 
of the Mount of OLves by Kempf (1168) 
and the tombs of the Archbishops of 
Freiburg: in the right aisle is the Chapet 
of the Holy Sepulchre with, close by, the 
statue of Duke Berthold V., the last of 
the Zfih ringers (1218). The vestibule, 
with its numberless statues of apostles, 
saints and prophets, produces a wonder- 
fully sMemn effect 

lu the tower, whif'h is ascended by 
the steps to the ri<?lit of the vestibule, 
the bells and clock are interesting, 
tue oldest of the former having been 
cast in 1258. 

St. Martin's (ParishChurch),with early- 
Gothic choir and laie-Go'hic nRve, con- 
tains frescoes and coloured ceilintf. 

Ludwiff's EraogeHeal, a Transitional 
edifice with paintings in the choir. 

Horz Jesn. designed by Max Meckel 
in Khenish Transitional style. 

St. John's contains a quantity of 
stain ed-gldss. 

Michael's Chapel possesses, in the 
porch, an interesting Dance of Death. 

Christ's Chnreh; the handsome Viii- 
Tersity Cbarch &c* 

There is also a massive, vaulted 
Chapel in the New Cemetery: it is 
sumptuously ornnmented with frescoes, 
mosaics and statues. 

Kau/haus (Guildhall) is a 16th cent, 
structure in late-Gothic style, with 
an effective, vaulted vestibule resting 
upon 5 columns. The statues em- 
bellishing the exterior represe ' e

Freiburg is a celebrated educational 
centre. Besides its various schools, 
it possesses a university of great fame. 
Indeed, the excellence of the lectures 
here attracts numerous American 
students, including a large proportion 
of ladies. 

The attractions of the city, b"*^ 
in summer and in winter, are v 
numerous. The theatre and concf 
are of the highest order. The fori 
is principally frequented during 
winter months; while in summer 
Public Gardens (conceits daily) f 
the centre of social life. 



■ Schwabenthor up Schlossber.^ (l,o25 ft.). 
The climb is rather a steep one, but 
}s rewarded by the beautiful gimiise 
afforded of the M inciter from the end or 
the Iznnaenibal Road, near the so-oniied 
Kanonen PI. Hard by are the ruins 
of two strong castJes destroyed by the 
French in I'i'iA and dovv su' roundel 
by pretty gardens. From Ludwigsbohe 
(i,SOO feet), above Kanonon PJ., a fine 
view ot the Dreisam Valley with the 
city and the Rhine f'Uin is obtained. 
The highest point of the moantnin is 
the io-oalled Mond (l,5oO »bet), rea(^hed 
from Ludwig>h6he, via Hnlnmoud, Fell- 
bergblick and Ilohen Briioke. 

Other excursions may be combined with 
that to the Schlogsberg. For example, 
from the Hohen, a footpatli leads 
by Silbermann Brannen to St. Ottilien. 
Nearly two hours further is the Ross- 
kopf, a fine height (2,-00 feet) with an 
outlook tower. Beyond, it are the rains 
of Zahrintrer C«»tle. 

Among innumerable ether delightful 
trips, the most cel^bratei are: - To 
Waldsee, a lovely spot within Va hour 
of Wiehre, the pretty suburb lying 
along the left bank of the Dreisam; 
to Bad Littenweiler (another hour); 
to tre charmins: village ot Giinteistal 
& the well-known rt'sort of Lorettoberg. 

L,OR£TTOBEUG, owing tO its 
beautiful situation and good climate, 
is one of the most favoured spots in 
the vicinity of Freiburg. It has con- 
sequently been chosen as the site 
for a sanatorium called Sanatorium 
Lorettoberg which commands an un- 
broken view of the city and the sur- 
rounding wooded heights. Tranquilly 
located in the midst of large park- 
like grounds, the institute bears the 
character of an elegant private resi- 
dence without the slightest suggestion 
of hospital or hotel life. Its rooms 
are exceptionally large, light and 
lofty; its hygienic and sanitary ar- 
rangements answer all modern re- 
quirements; and the woods in the 
immediate neighbourhood afford an 
inexhau.stible variety of most delight- 
jl walks. 

The chief complaints treated are: — 

Tvous affections; disturbances in 

etabolism, e. g. gout, chlorosis; 

seases of the heart and bloodvessels; 
jeumatism; female compUints; con- 
alescent conditions etc. (debility, 

ronic typhlitis and the like).

BADENWEILER is one of the 
finest subalpine spas in Germany: 
it lies in a charming spot, on the 
north-western slopes of the Blauen. 
Encircled by the magnificent hiUs 
and pine-woods of the Black Forest, 
its climate is remarkable for equability, 
absence of local breezes and rarity 
of bleak or of relaxing winds. 

These climatic conditions , com- 
bined with the thermal baths, make 
this spa an excellent resort for 
patients suffering from rheumatism, 
goat, diabetes, diseases of the re- 
spiratory organs &c., and adapt it 
for convalescents and aged persons. 
The baths are especially suitable in 
cases of neurasthenia, amenorrhcea 
and dysmenorrhoea. 

Its chief building is the Pavilion 
(Kurhaus) in a fine, well - timbered 
park , containing remains of old 
Roman baths. A flight of steps leads 
up to the ruins of an ancient Castle 
on a spot commanding a view of 
the Rhine and the VoSges. Opposite 


the entrance to the park stands the 
Grand Ducal Castle (16th cent.). 

The Marmorhad is a fine edifice 
in the style of a Roman bath.

Matrerhorn, comes into view. 

T0E BEI.CHEN (Hot. k. Belelien)

sister heights. At its foot lie the 
valleys of the Wiesen, the Mdnster an^ 
the Bhine; westwards, in the distance, 
are the Vosges Hts. ; to the S., the Jura,

number, are very useful in cases of 
ansemia, debility and their conse- 
quent disorders. They are all of 
them chalybeate; but the Joseph-

annually over 10,000 *kur* visitors

number of whom are Anglo-Saxons; 
consequently, although the place is 
so small, it possesses, besides its own

The inhabitants are mostly engaged 
in the manufacture of cuckoo & similar 
clocks, Triberg being the centre of 
the B'ack Forest clock-making industry. 
These so-called Dutch clocks are ex- 
hibited in the Gewerbe- Halle, which 
forms the principal sight in the town. 

From the Gewerbehalle, a walk of 

a few minutes leads to the celebrated 

waterfall, which is the largest in Ger- 

y; the road is indicated by sign 

s, following whose direction one 

1 finds oneself on a projecting 

5 from which an excellent view is 

atned. Here the Gutach or Fallback 

:ipitates a not inconsiderable volume 

water from a height of 954 feet 

the basin below, the booming and 

ning fall being broken into seven 

grand cascades by the mighty granite 
blocks which intercept its course. 
The waterfall, as well as the town, 
is illuminated every evening by elec- 
tric light; while, on Sundays, Bengal 
fire is employed to enhance the fan- 
tastic effect. 

The town possesses a band of 28 
musicians, playing every week-evening 
throughout the season. There is also 
a tennis-lawn; and trout-fishing may 
be had in the various streams. 

From the left bank of the Gutaoh, a 
pretty footpath leads past the pavilion 
to th^ celebrated Wallfahrtskirehe or 
Maria in der Tanne. Other charming ex- 
carsions are to Kesselberg; to Stdekle*

FREUDENSTADT, the most elevated 
town of Wurtembcrg, is situated on 
a high plateau, and has been named 
the ''Pearl of the Black Forest". It is 
surrounded with enormous forests of 
fir (16,000 acres) and bright green 
meadows backed by the blue Swabian 
Alps, prominent among which are the 
Hohenzollern and the snow-capped 
mountains of Switzerland. Owing to 
the altitude and the vastness of the 
forests, the air is exceptionally pure 
and ozoniferous aqd, even at the 
highest temperature, never still. The 
extensive woodland walks in the im- 
mediate neighbourhood are always 
found to be dry. The most famous 
of them is the Teuchelesweg with its 
numerous seats, tables, shelters, its 
clear springs and water-falls which 
have obtained wide celebrity in the 
fashionable world. 

Freudenstadt is the chief starting- 
point for the most famous B'acU 
Forest excursions :—AIIerheilii»en, Wild- 
see, Mummelsee, Bad Rippoldsau, the 
Renchtal Spas, the Knzigtal, Kniebis, 
Murgtal Sankenbach Waterfalls &c. It 
is also unrivalled as a resort for nerve- 
sufferers and for supplementary treat- 
ment after visiting Carlsbad, Kissingen, 
Nauheim, Neuenahr &c. The principal 
ailments treated are: — nervous com- 
plaints, affections of the heart, anaemia, 
obesity And diabetes. 

There are, in Freudenstadt, a 
sanatorium for nervous complaints, 
5 physicians, 2 pharmacies and a 
hospital in modern style with medicinal 
baths (electric baths, faradisation 
&c.). Supplementary hereto is the 
Bothner'sche Badeanstalt with vapour, 
saline, pine-need e, mud and carbonic 
acid baths. Moreover, there is a 
handsome municipal light, air and sun 
bath; while, beyond the villa district, 
stand three woodland cafes.

are among the most famous in the 
Black Forest. .Altogether the town 
contains 35 hotels & boarding-houses 
and some 200 private flats. It has 
an excellent water-supply, electric 
works, and sewering; and the roads 
are .regularly watered, — advantages 
. which render it an international resort 
much frequented by Americans. 

Freudenstadt was founded in 1599 
by Duke Frederick L, who settled 
a number of protestant refugees here 
'from Salzburg. It is built in the form 
of a square, and is a wealthy industrial 
town possessing 8,000 acres of timber. 

The market place, with an area of 
4Vi hectares, is surrounded with ar- 
cades in Italian style, beneath which 
there are elegant show-windows. 

One of the most interesting build- 
ings of the place is the Proiesiant 
urch, — a curious structure wiih 
naves placed at right angles and 

tended respectively for the use of 

en and women. The pulpit is situated 
the junction of the two parts, so 

» to enable the preacher to obtain 

view of both his audiences at once; 

bile they, themselves, are hidden 

e one from the other. The church 

contams a Komane?quc font (ll^h 
cent.), a renowned crucifix, 26 richly 
gilded reliefs with figures of biblical 
characters, and some magnificent 
carved choir- stalls. 

The Catholic Church contains a 
fine altar in Italian Renaissance. A 
third church" is the Friedenskirche 
of the Methodists. 

High above the whole stands the 
Herzog-Friedrichs Turm, a flagged 
tower perched on the Kierberg (2,626 
ft.) and visible for a great distance.

bervice. But in that year the celebrated 
HoUentlial Railroad from Freiburg to 
Neustadt was opened, bringing with it 
possibilities for the village or Titisee 
which arci as yet, still in the bud.

BlAck Forest X: From TITISEE via 



There are verv various ways leading 
from Titisee to Feldberg; but it is usual 
to take the coach, which runs daily. 


Feldberg is the highest point in the 
Black Forest, and indeed, with the ex- 
ception of the Schneekoppe (5^0 feet), 
the highest of the German Mittelgebirgen. 
Its long and giant form, with its Ave 
lateral oranches. determines clearly the 
configuration of the southern half of 
the Black Forest. The principal peaks 
are Seebnck (4.758 feet), to the east, 
Baldenweger Unck (4.798 feet), to the 
north, and "Hochste" (4,9X0 feet'. On 
the hrst of these' stands a Bismarck 
Monument; while, on the last, there are 
an outlook tower ("13 feet in height) and 
a hotel called ^Zam Peldbergthnrai*'. 
The cliff^d are, on all sides, precipitous, 
and present us, as we traverse the 
mountain ridge, with varying scenery 
of a bold and rugged character. On the 
northern slope ot the Feldberg and 985 ft. 
below Seebuck, lies Feldsee, black with 
the shadows of the surrounding cliffs. 
It has a maximum depth of 106 feet, and 
is fed by the Wutach, falling in mighty 
cascades from the depression between 
Seebuck and Baldenweger Buck. These 
waters leave the lake on the east as 
the Seebaeh. Three other streams, the 
Alb) the IViese and the Dreisany also 
have their sources on Feldberg. 

The frlopes and spurs of the mountain 
up to an altitude of 4,4H0 feet, are co- 
vered with luxuriant undergrowth ; while 
the bald summit commands a magni- 
ficent view. In the foreground lies the 
Black Forest with numerous valleys 
and heights; sharp and rugged s:and 
out the Kaue Alp and Hegauer Kegel; 
beyond appears the long and picturesque 
line of the Vosges, and in the distance, 
the mighty Alpine groups, peak on peak 
in sharp and serri«*d array, from the 
Zngspitze to Mont Blanc. 

in winter th« hotels are much fre- 
quented by skiers. 

The principal approaches to Feldberg 
are the carriage roads from Titisee, Todt- 
naui/W.& St. Blasien. Besides these, how- 
ever, there are numerous delightful forest 
1 oads, such as those coming from the vari- 
ous stations of the Hollenthal Railway. 

Moreover, the choice of excursions is 
not less extensive, the favourite being 
to Herzogenhorn, Spieshorn, Silberberg, 
Schaoinsland, Belchen, and to the in- 
dustrial towns or' Todtuau, Reman.

B«ijig quite open to the S. & S.E , its 
clitnate combines alt the advantages 
of a forest and mountain retreat. 

Besides the principal building, there are 
a physician's residence, administrative 
offices and an engine-house in the valley. 

The chief structure consists of a five- 
Jitoried main building, with patients' 
roomSf and two wings containing re- 
spectively the hydrotherapeutic rooms 
&c.,and the offices, dining-hall & kitchen. 

In this way the highly important 
principle of separating all subsidiary 
rooms from the others has been 
strictly observed. 

In front of the central building is the 
resting pavilion, 80 metres long and 
with two wings running out at an angle 
to the south. Below the pavilion is a 
promenade of the same length. In the 
surroundmg grounds two more resting 
pavilions have been erected. On the 
ground-floor of the central building are 
the elegantly furnished reception rooms, 
concert -hail, drawing-room, library, 
reading-room &c. — all of them facing 
south. The physician's house contains 
the doctors' private apartments and 
fourteen rooms for patients. All the 
upper floors consist exclusively of the 
patients' bedrooms. Altogether, the sa- 
natorium contains ninety-eight rooms, 
not a single one of which faces north. 

The establishment has its own supply 
of spring- water, sewerage system wi:h 
disinfecting apparatus, low-pressure 
heating and electric light. The principle 
of cleanhness and disinfection is strictly 
enforced throughout. The walls are hung 
half-way up with washable hygienic 
paper: the floors are covered with lino- 
leum; electric bells & telephone are flited 
to all parts of the house; and the prin- 

al building contains hydraulic lift. 

[!he onrative treatment is stciotly in- 

idnalistic, being based on the method 
vised by Brobmer and Dettweiler and 

proved by Turban. The head phy- 
aan is Dr. Lips, formerly assiscnnt at

Lying at the junction of two 
elevated valleys of the southern Black 
Forest, with an excellent porphyiy 
and granite subsoil, the place is soon 
freed from snow and rain, especially 
as its situation is a sunny one. These 
characteristics, together with the pro- 
tection afforded by the neighbouring 
Peldberg, render it, even in May 
and June, - exceedingly suitable for 
patients suffering from complaints of 
the nervous system or of the organs 
of respiration or circulation. 

The resort is surrounded by fine 
sylvan scenery and grand hills. The 
walks in the vicinity extend for several 
miles, and are not only well-kept but 
have a constantly varying gradient, and 
are supplied with over 400 seats. 
■/4 hr. suffices to reach points of view 
commanding whole ranges of mountains 
including the highest peaks of the Black 
Forest. For 10 years the late Grand 
Dnke of Baden and his consort honoured 
the institute with their regular visits. 
The neighbourhood offers first-rate 
opportunities for shooting and trout- 
fishing. Besides the Kurhaus, which 
is open from 15th May till 1st October, 
and has a fine fountain playing in 
the grounds, the most noteworthy 
buildings are the Hall of Industry 
(Gewerbehalle), and the stately Church, 
— the latter built by Ixnard in 1783 
on the lines of the Pantheon at Rome. 
The Church is a beautilul Barocco 
building surmounted by a cupola and 
now undergoing restoration. 

Among the excellent sanatoria of 


SU Blasien the following may be 
mentioned, namely: — 

The Hydropathic Establishment of the 
Hotel Sc Kurhaus Si. Blasien, whose 
beautiful situation, as indicated above, 
as well as its excellent appointments, 
renders it one of the best of its kind 
in Germany. It contains compartments 
for ladies and gentlemen, with mud, 
saline & electric baths, gymnasium &c. 
Bordering the forest there are light and 
air baths on a large and beautiful mea- 
dow. Managing physicians are Hofrat 
Dr. Determann and Dr. van Oordt. 

Sftnatorium Villa Luisenheim, 
which is beautifully situated on the 
southern slope of the Botzberg in 
the immediate neighbouthood of the

the valley. It has been recently en- 
larged and thoroughly renovated, is 
supplied with electric light, and con- 
tains 30 rooms, to nearly all of which 
there are covered balconies. The 
cuisine is under the direction of the 
physician, whereby the diet is adapted 
for the various diseases, such as 
diabetes and complaints of the digestive 
organs. The methods adopted are 
principally hydrotherapy, electricity, 
massage and gymnastics; while the 
complaints treated are those of ♦**- 
nutritive system and of the exr 
and circulatory organs.

ARMSTADT, the capital of the 
id Duchy of Hessen, is a regularly 
It place, with the principal railway- 
Jon at one end, and Rosenhohe 
ion at the other. Close by the 
sr is a fine lake, called Woog, 

into which the river Darm falls: the 
lake also serves for bathing. In the 
centre of the town stands the 

Palace, a 16*h cent, edifice with 
fine faQade, beautiful Renaissance porch 
and elegant tower. The building con- 
tains the Grand Ducal Library of 
600,000 vol. and 4,000 MS5: in the 
picture gallery are some fine paintings 
by Rembrandt, van Dyck, Rubens &c. ; 
while, in the upper story, there is an 
archeeological museum. 

To the S. of the palace stretches 
the irregular Markt PI., embellished 
with a fountain and surrounded with 
several interestmg buildings. Here 
stands the Rathaus, a Renaissance 
structure erected in 1568. At Markt 
Passage will be found the old palace, 
where Queen Louise, consort of 
Frederick William III., was brought up. 

Adjoining the Markt PI. is Ernst 
Ludwigs PI. in whose southern corner 


risles the White Tovier, a remnant of 
the medisB^al ramparts; while in the 
centre there is a monument to the 
Franco- Prus§iah War. ; 

At the eastern end of Scbul St is 
the jsretty !^eal Gymftasium With, close 
by, the irregularly built Ludwig Georg 
Gymnasium and the Technical- High 
School. The building beyond, with the 
high tower, is the "Old Gy,mnasium". 

From here, Hugel St. leads to the 

New Palace, built in 1862—65 
from designs by Kriauss of Mayence. 
It is a graceful structure in Italian 
style, with a particularly good fa9ade 
on the garden side. The interior 
contains a marble stair- case, whose 
walls are hung with Gobelins, a room 
with handsome, carved ceiling and 
very valuable tapestry (*Iphigenia' 
and 'Admiral Coligny*), numerous 
paintings &c. The grounds, which 
were formerly the Botanical Garden, 
are very beautifully laid-out. 

Following Wilhelm SL southwards, 
we reach the Palais of the late Prince 
Carl. It is in Italian style, and the 
situation, with its extensive view of 
the Rhine, is very beautiful. The other 
buildings of interest, such as the 
Theatre, Museum and the OhiRathaus, 
lie close to the Schloss: the Govern- 
meni Building, and the Palais are in 
Luisen St. The Herrengarfen, beyond 
the Theatre, Mathilden Hohe and 
Rosenhohe (Palais and MausoUnm) 
are also worth visiting. 

In the south of the town are the 
Grand -Ducal Garden and the Grand- 
Ducal Orangery. 

The environs of Darmstadt are ex- 
ceedingly beautiful, the country being 
undulating and covered with woods of 
various kinds. An extensive railway 
system gives access to meuay places of 
interest and renders the town an ad- 
mirable centre for numerous charming

STUTTGART is the capital of 
Wiirtemberg and the residence of the 
king, and vies with Leipsic as a centre 
of the printing and publishing trades. 
Moreover, both in situation and in 
architecture, it ranks among the finest 
towns in Germany. Its principal 
buildings are the following: — 

The Rcsidenz Schloss, standing close 
to the fine broad street called KonigSt, 
which runs for a length of over ^/^ of 
a mile through the centre of the town. 
The edifice is a fine specimen of the 
Renaissance, erected 1746—1807. It 
consists of a main building with two 
wings, and is surmounted by an 
enormous gilded crown. Its 360 odd 
rooms contain some beautiful fres- 
coes and a large number of paintings, 
some fine statuary (Dannecker, Thor- 
waldsen &c.) and a quantity of valu- 
able porcelain. Near it is 

The Old Schloss, a somewhat irre- 
gularly built edifice, erected in 1553, 
whose courtyard is embellished 
with an equestrian statue of Count 
Eberhardl im Bart the first Duke of 
Wurtemberg. Close by is the Academy, 
beyond which are the Royal Library 
(500,000 volumes, 4,000 MSS.) and 
the Record Office containing a col- 
lection of minerals and palaeontological 
antiquities. The building beyond is the 
Konig Wilhelm Palais; while, passing 
along Neckar St in the reverse direc- 
tion, we reach 

The Hnaeam of Arty which contains, 

^Dg its statnes, a large bust of 

ller by Dannecker, the celebrated 
I sculptor: the locks are said to 
) been chiselled off by the sonlptor 
D£f a fit of insanity. The pictare 
)ry is very extensive and valnable. 
contains specimens of many varions 
ols. Opposite the building htands the 
9 behind which lies the beaatiful 
OSS Qarten. Among other objects of 
'est are the Memorial Coloniii of 
r Willisny the Lisst Memorial in the 
''^ Anlagen, statues of SehlUery 

Btsroarek and Moltke, tbf* War Ofllec, 
bt« Joiiannesklrelie and Marienklrelie. 

In the environs, there are some beau- 
tiful excursions, the favourite bfing to 
the roval chAteau called Boseastela acd 
to Wilh^lmsy a palace in Moresque style, 
built for William I. in 1812. Moreover, 
there is the beautiful Sobloss Oarten, 
a splendid park with two fine lakes 
and an extension stretching away to 
Canrstatt, to which a bridc^e leads 
across from the suburb ca'le<i Berg. 

CAMlfSTATT (POP.: 25,000. —

BOTE L8 : Bnsslseher Hof ; MUnster Hot. 

This ancient city lies on the Danube, 
between Wtirtemberg and Bavaria, and 
was once a free city, whose former im- 
portance is still recognisable in the 
character of its buildings and fortifica- 
tions. These latter, however, have been 
in recent years to a large extent de- 
molished and modem forts ere -ted out- 
side the old city. 

Ulm's finest edifice is its celebrated 

Minster, in the centre of the city. It 
is a beautiful Qothic structure second 
in sise to Cologne Cathedral only. The 
foundations were laid in 1877, and the 
building completed towards the close of 
the 15th cent. The finest part is the tower 
in the middle of the western facade: the 
interior contains some beautiful paint- 
ings, some excellent 16tlt cent, wood- 
carving and an enormous organ, — the 
largest in Germany. The church-tower 
affords a magnificent view. Among other 
important buildings are the W^ cent. 
Bathsns, the so -called Xene Baa (1590), 
the Indastrial Museum (Tauben Gasse), 
the Weinhof and Trinity Church. 

Some distance beyond Ulm, the rail 
passes through the small but ancient 
and inteiesting town of Biberach, 
and reaches, about 15 miles further, 
Anlendorf Jonetion. Twelve miles be- 
yond, we stop at RATE NS BURG

This is a busy town situated on 
the shores of the Lake of Constance 
with a railway station at the harbour, 
whence steamboats. run> several times 
daily, to the various other towns 
bordering the lake. The place c6n- 
tains a collection of antiquities (many 
of them prehistoric), which have been 
gathered together by the Bodensee 
Vercin. Moreover, in the Castle will

LINDAU, the terminus of the Ba- 
varian State Railway, is charmingly 
situated on an island in the Lalce of 
Constance, with whose shore it is con- 
nected by two bridges. The view of 
the resort from either of these or from 
the mainland is extremely picturesque; 
while the panorama of the lake and 
its surroundings is almost unrivalled. 
Countless Alpine peaks rise one above 
the other, the most striking summits 
being the Pfander, the Gebhardt Mts., 
the Vorarlberg Range to the Rhine 
Valley, the mighty and glaciered 

Scesaplana and Santis; while down 
the lake appear the romantic Hohen- 
wiel and its satellites. 

The town has also pre.seFved, in an 
unusual; degree, its quaint, old-world 
appearance. Several of its buildings 
are of great interest, e. g., the vener- 
able old Raihaus (dating back to the 
15th cent.), the Reichsb 111 tt ft en 8cc, 

Moreover, Lindau forms the nucleus 
of vast international traffic, and is a 
very suitable spot to stay at when 
making lengthy Continental tours. It 
is the junction of three railway lines, 
which afford communication with 
North Germany, Holland, Belgium, 
France, Switzerland and Italy. The 
Bodensu GiirUl Bahn referred -to 
above establishes the connection 
between Lindau and Friedrichshafen, 
Ueberlingen, Radolfzell and Bale. 
Direct steamer routes to Switzerland 
enable passengers to proceed to Italy. 
Ninety-six steamboats enter artd leave 
Lindau Harbour daily; while, also. 
daily, one hundred and twenty trains 
cross the railway embankment (1,800 
ft. long). Excellent fast and express 
trains run between Lindau and Leipsic, 
Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg; Lindau and

CONSTANCE was at one time a 
free imperial city, but, after being 
incorporated in Austria, became, in 
1805, a town of the Duchy of Baden. 
It is situated at the efflux of the 
Rhine from the lake to which the 
town has given its name, but which 
is also called Bodensee. The place was 
formerly the see of a bishop; and its 

Cathidral still forms its most im- 
portant edifice. It was founded in 
1062, the original building having 
been a cruciform basilica: this was, 
however, completely remodelled in the 
1 'th cent V- and during the middle of 
the 19fch cent., its Gothic spire, with 
fretted-work, was added from designs 
by Hiibsch. From this tower a fine 
view of the town and the lake is 
obtained. The interior of the building 
contains, in Ihe nave, a stone with 
a white spot in the centre which 
is said to remain dry while the sur* 
rounding parts aiv^ damp, Huss having 
stood on the spot when condemned 
to death in 1415. The treasury, the 
crypt, and a collection of antiquities 
are all of interest. 

SU Stephens Church, a I5*h cent. 
Gothic building with a high spire, 
contains notable carvings. • 






The Stadtkanzlei, built in Renais- 
sance style, in 1593, possesses a 
fa9ade embellished with frescoes by 
Froschle and Wagner in 1 864 : it 
contains the city archives and some 
further frescoes in the second storey. 

The Kaufhaus, erected in 1388, 
possesses an enormous Sessions 
Room supported by ten large wooden 

The Grand Ducal Gallery, 41 
Wessenberg St. (open 9—12 & 2— 5) 
contains a collection of paintings and 
is the depository of the municipal 
collection of prints. 

The Rdsgarien Museum, 5 Ros- 
garten St., possesses a collection of 
r>rehistoric and antiquarian objects. 

John Huss^s House, 64 Hussen St. 

Between the Rhine Bridge and the 
Stadtgarten lies an island known as 
'The Isle**. It is reached by a bridge 

from Eisenbahn St., and is remarkable 
for its remains of an ancient church 
now converted into a fine hotel fai 
which the old relics have been well 
preserved. The associations of the 
island date back to the earliest times, 
the spot having served as a Roman 
bulwark against the Allemanni who 
destroyed the Castle built as an out- 
post in A. D. 292. A few years before, 
St Pelagius had met martyrdom on the 
spot ; and subsequenlly the German 
tribes obliterated all traces of Roman 
and Christian influence. 

In the course of time Christianity, 
which had slumbered in the sur- 
rounding district, awoke to fresh 
activ ty, and, after passing through 
various vicissitudes, the island was 
transferred by Bishop Henry I., in 1236, 
to the Dominicans. These skilful 
architects proceeded to erect a large 



and handsome church and convent 
in the Transitional style. The main 
parts of this edifice are still extant, 
the nave and aisles having been con- 
verted into a fine dining- hall; white 
other parts have been left practically 
untouched or have been merely re- 
stored or beautified. Of these the 
most remarkable are the Cloisters con- 
sisting of stone-pillars, ogival arches 
and graceful Romanesque columns. 
A number of 17*h century frescoes, 
with which it had been decorated, 
have been removed and replaced by 
a fine series of paintings, representing 
episodes from the history of the is- 
land and executed by Professor Carl 
Haberlin of Stuttgart. 

A porch, flanked by two beautiful 
Transitional windows, gives access to 
the refectory, remarkable for its an- 
cient wainscoting and humorous in- 
scriptions. Standing close to the 
refectory and forming part of the 
eastern front of the hotel is the small 
but extremely interesting Huss Tower.

iVs hours distant f^m Constance, and 
connected with the mainland by a long 
bridge. Its old castle was rebuilt by 
the late Orand Duke of Baden; but 
an ancient cross on its southern side 
indicates that the island, which lies 
like a gem in tbe green waters of 
the lake, once belonged to an order of 
German Chivalry.

This university town and favourite 
health-resort ia beautifully situated at 
the confluence of the Neekary the Stein- 
baeh and tbe Ammer. The older parts 
of the plaee are uninviting; but the 

more modem districts are beautifully 
laid-out; and the neighbourhood of the 
Black Forest, with its delightful excur- 
sions and fine hills and vIewSi renders 
the town ver;^ attractive. Moreover^ 
many of its buildings possess consider- 
able historical and artistic interest. In 
the Stlftsklrche^ there are some good 
stained-glass and a number of monu- 
mental tombs. Among the latter is that 
of Count Eberhard, (1406), the foander of 
the University. This last is situated 
near the church, and is celebrated for 
its eonneotion with Melancbthou: it ia 
also famous for its chairs of theology 
and medicine, and possesses some gO)a 
oollectioriS and a number of interesting 
and valuable pictures, including a Cor- 
regglo and a MarilJo. 

Near Neckar Bridge is Uhland's 
House, where the poet died in 1862: 
his remains are interred in the 
churchyard, the spot being marked

Renaissance structure with a richly- 
ornamented porch, and containing 
a Library, an Observatory, and a 
Dungeon with a deep well and an 
enormous tun. From the ramparts 
behind the castle a beautiful view 
is obtained ; while other spots in 
the vicinity also offer delightful pro- 
spects of the Black Forest and the

This ancient university city is beau-

Main. The city proper was formerly 
surrounded with ramparts which have 
now been prettily laid-out as recreation 
grounds. Almost in the very centre 
of the place, rises 

The Cathedral, a large basilica which 
has had a varied history. The original 
building, founded in very early times, 
stood on the site of the neighbouring 
Neumiinster Church. This, as well as 
several succeeding structures, fell a 
ptcy to th-' flames. The present edifice

made in the following century , the choir 
being much improved in 1240, and the 
eastern towers and apse completed 
about 1237. Gothic modifications are 
also, here and there, observable; while, 
the Schonborn Kapelle, in sumptuous 
Rococo style, deserves mention. 

The building contains numerous

At the Market Place stands, perhaps, 
the most beautiful of Wurzburg's 
churches, namely the Marienkapelle, 
a Gothic building containmg many 
tombs and statues. It was begun in 
.A. D. 1377 and completed in A. D. 
1479, the top of the delicate spire, 
which is visible for a great distance, 
having been restored from designs 
by Reuss in 1856. The figures of 
Christ and John Baptist on the but- 
tresses are by Riemenschneider. On 
the other side of the Market Place, 
will be seen the Old Raihaus, built 
in the 1 2th and 15th centuries- and 
possessing an imposing early -Barocco 
fa9ade and gable which form part of

from the close of the 1 7th cent. It 
con tarns a fresco by Barlhelme and 
a beautifully-carved pulpit. 

In the south of the town, is the 

RoyttiRtsiii^itce, formerly an episcopal 
palace, and stilJ, pcrhnpF, the most 
remarkable edifice of Wurzburg. It 
was begur] in 1720 by Joh, B^^lth. Neu-

one of the largest iind handsomest 
specimens of the Renaissance ^tyle 
extant, the vestibule in the middle 
of the building and the adjoining 
Stkgenhaus^ being master-pieces of

Springs and equable climate have 
rendered it the leading spa in Bavaria 
and, indeed, one of the most cele- 
brated in Europe. 

It contains sev^eral springs with a 
very high yield and of a remarkably 
effective character. 

Kissingen possesses four drinking foun- 
tains, namely, the Rakoczy, the Patt^ur^ 
the Maxbrnnnen and Booklet Stahl- 
hruunen: while Kissifiger Bitter^ 
fvasser and the Soles prudel are also 
in use. 

of the above, the Pandur, is also use J 
for bathing; but there are two special 
springs for this purpose, namely: — 
the Salinensprudel^ delivering, per 
minute, 550 litres of salt and 2000 to 
6000 litres of carbonic acid ; and the 
Schonborfisprudelf delivering, p6r mi- 

nute, 600 litres of salt and 4000 to 
6000 litres of carbonic .«cid. 
singen waters contain, as their chief 
active principle, "sodium chloride and 
carbonic acid, the proportion, both in 
the drinking fountains and in the 
bathing springs, being exceptionally, 
favourable. A litre of the former yields 
•2— -50/0 and of the latter \% of salt 
and no less than 1350 to 1600 cubic 
centimetres of carbonic-acid gas. Their 
value is also enhanced by the posses- 
son of other chemical substances such 
as purgative salts, carbonate of iron 
protoxide, lithium etc. 

TREATMENT.- Besides the drink- 
ing and bathing mentioned above, there 
are "Moor''-baths from the Rhon peat- 
beds; Fango-treatment, air and sun 
baths; a graduating house with 13'^ing- 
out halls and covered colonnades.

ROTHENBURG, a very interesting 
old town of Franconia, is situated 
on the edge of a high chalk-plateau 
(1,396 feet), which slopes sharply 
towards the Tauber. 

The position of the town and 
its admirable sanitation render it 
exceptionally salubrious; though the 
great attraction of the place con- 
sists in its having preserved, in so 
remarkable a degree, its mediaeval 

Quaint towers, Gothic churches, 
Renaissance halls and well-preserv- 
ed ramparts present a picture 
that carries the mind forcibly back 
to the days of chivalry and knight- 

On approaching the town from 
the station, we pass through Roder 
Thor, which, like the other five 
principal gates, gives direct access 
to the Market Place, in the centre 
of the town. 

^^ Rothenburg o/Tauben 

[iotel zum Elsenhut. 


The western side of this square is 
occupied by the Rathaus» «n. imposing 
edifice in two parts, respectively Re- 
naissance and Gothic. The former 
(begun in 1572) faces the Markt PI*, 
and possesses a magnificent colon- 
nade, gable &c.: the latter is a,, fine 
specimen "of early-Gothic ( 1 240) and 
has an exceedingly fine belfry-tower, 
and an interesting but weather-beaten 

A little to the north stands the 
finest of Rothenburg's eight churches, 
namely, St. James:' Church, a beau- 
tiful specimen of Gothic architecture, 
which, though begun as early as 
1373 and completed in 1436, is 
Perpendicular in style. Its two 
towers are each 175 ft, high, but 
the northern one is much more elegant 
than its companion. 

The interior contains numerous 
beautiful carvings, especially on the 
columns, as well as three altars, of 
which the high-altar, with its fine 
screen and back-ground of stained- 
glass windows, produces a very ele- 
vating impression. 

Another interesting church is the 
Franziskatterkirche in Herren Gasse 
near Burg Gate. The building, to- 
gether with the neighbouring cloisters, 
was completed in 1282, being an 
early-Gothic structure of very pure 
and severe type. 

The preservation of its ancient 
walls and buildings, Rothenburg owes, 
in large part, to the Burgomaster 
who by a mighty draught of wine 
redeemed the town from Tilly. 

Some of the best pieces of the 
old town- wall are to be seen at 
Klingen and Cobolzeller Gates, near 
the former of which is the old

tiful wooden ceilings. Opposite the 
building stands

MUNICH is Che capital of the 
Ktrrgdoin o( Bavafwh and -a fine okl 
city with a pop* of over 538.000, 
the larger pniportion of whom are 
Roman CalhoUci^. It was founded^ 
prabably, at the close of the 11*^ 
centi and was surrounded with a 
wall and raise^J to the status of 
u town by Henry the Lion, in 1164. 
Visited by a severe conflagrbtion in 
the year 1327, it was rebuilt and 
extended by the Emperor Ludwig 
the Bavarian. An important epoch 
in the development of the place 
followed , Itafian workmen being 
introduced to assist in the erection 

of a Library, Treasury, Picture Gal- 
lery and other important ' buildings. 
Some 200 years feler, -the Elector 
Maximilian added it ^niagnificent pa- 
lace, which still forms- , part of the 
present building: thd saipe monarch 
embellished the place with bronze 
monuments, erected the. Joseph, and 
Herzog Spita^, and fortified the 
new walls and ramparts. Indeed, 
the rulers of Bavaria have spared 
neither pains nor expense to render 
their capital both beautiful and at- 
tractive; and, during the reigns of 
Maximilian Joseph I. and his son 
Ludwig L (1825—1848), the place

along two sides of which run ar-: 
cades decorated with frescoes by 
(Caulbach, Rottmann and others. To 
the north, there is a Museum of 
Plaster Casts which contains also 
an ethnographical collection. Attached 
to it are the premises of the Art Union, 
with a perrnanent exhibition of works 
by living masters. Close by, at the 
corner of Prinzregenten St., is one 
Gi ^ the entrances to the English 
Garden (see 'Suburbs', below). 

To Prinzregenten St., the National 
Museum has been removed. Founded 
in Maximilian St. in 1855 by King 
Max n., this museum has rapidly 

risen to an impor4ant position among 
institutions of the kind. The . col- 
lections fail under the following 
heads: — 

(1) Antiquities of the bronze -age, 
iron -age, Roman times, and the 
Merovingian period &c., together with 
specimens of mediaeval . art, a number 
of incunabula, coins &c. (2) Carpets,

see the Offices of the Hamburg- 
American Line, with the American 
Reading Room and the American 
Church, near which rises the hand- 
some Theatinerkirche in Italian Ba-

and two aisles, with a high cupola 
and towers. The interior contains 
restored pictures by Tintoretto and

Prinz Lnitpold, who, however, as 
regent, now resides in the Konigliche 
Residenz. At the corner of Gallerie St. 
are the Treasury Offices, and a little 
further up Ludwig St., at the next 
corner, stands the Imperial Bank. 
Across the street, in a slanting direc-

with some fine stone - carving. Ad- 
jacent hereto is the 

Hof' und StaatS'Bibliothek (Court 
and State Library): it is an imposing 
building in Florentine style, possessing 
a handsome facade and a fine flight of 
steps embellished with statues of 
Thucydides, Homer, Aristotle and 
Hypocrates. The Library, which was 
founded by Duke Albert V., is one of 
the most celebrated in Europe, and con- 
tains, in its 77 rooms, over 1,300,000 
vols, dnd more than 30,000 MSS. 
The building in which it is lodged 
was erected under King Ludwig L 
from designs by Gartner. A few 
steps further, and on the same side 
of the way, is 

Ludwigskirchc, likewise designed 
by Gartner: it is in Italian style, and the 
porch is embellished with statues of 
the four Evangelists by Schwanthaler. 
The interior contains a celebrated 
fresco of the Day of Judgement: it 
is the most important of Cornelius' 
pictures (cf. Diisseldorf); while the 
other paintings in the building are 

also from his designs. Opposite is 
another of Gartner's erections, namely, 
the Institute for the Blind, 

A few paces further, we reach a 
square containing two fountains: the 
buildings on our right are the Clerical 
Seminary and a Reformatory, The 
other side of the square is occupied 
by the University, which, founded 
at Ingolstadt in 1472, was after- 
wards transferred to Landshut and, 
finally, in 1826, to Munich. Its 
present lodgment was built in 1838, 
and is another of Gartner's erections: 
its library, in the 2iid storey, contains 
over 300,000 volumes. The street 
ends, nominally, at ^ 

Sieges Thor, a handsome gateway 
erected under King Ludwig I., and 
dedicated by him to the Bavarian 
Army. It divides Munich from the 
suburb of Schwabing, and, of course, 
faces towards the latter. Its architect 
was Gartner; while the group of 
lions with 'Bavaria', is by Wagner.

Gottfried von Neureuther in 1884, in 
pure Italian Renaissance: it contains a

of various periods. We proceed to the

left, down Turken St., as far as the 
tramway line in Theresien St. Turning, 
here, to the right, a few paces bring 
us to the 

Neue Pinakoihek, a museum erected 
under Ludwig I. : it is in Romanesque 
style, designed by Voit, and contains, 
on the ground floor, a Collection 
of Porcelain* including 207 painted 
tablets, 72 plates, and 2 vases upon 

which have been reproduced, by 14 
artists, some beautiful copies of cele- 
brated works contained in the Old 
Pinakoihek. But the main collection 
is the Picture Gallery, which con- 
sists of a large number of modem 
paintings chiefly by Munich masters 
of the 18th and 19*h centuries: in 
the vestibule, for instance, are Kaul- 
bach's portraits of King Ludwig L 
and King Maximilian II., and a likeness 
of Prince Regent Luitpold by Holm- 
berg. Adjacent to this gallery is the 
Royal Antiquarium, in which is 
deposited a collection of Greek, Roman 
and Egyptian works of art, supple- 

Speciaiil-fes for Exporh; 

Slackbcfiy-Bfandy, Cherry Brandy^ 


mentary to that in the Glyptothek 
(see below). On the other side of 
Theresien St, an entrance will be 
found leading to the Old Pinakothek. 
The AUe Pinakoihek is a fine 
Renaissance edifice erected by Klenze 
in 1836 for the reception of the 
extensive collections of old master- 
pieces which had been gathered to- 
gether by the Elector Karl Theodor. 
The rooms are numbered from £. 
to W., and contain, in the eastern 
wing, the salon of the founder and 
of the Cologne and Rhenish Schools; 
in room No. 3, the High -German 
School; No. 4 Dutch; No. 5 Flemish; 

No. 6 Rubens; No. 7 Flemish (con- 
tinued); No. 8 Italian; No. 9 Venetian; 
No. 10 (west wing) Italian; No. 11 
Spanish; No. 12 French. The col- 
lection is very extensive, and in- 
cludes over 1,400 paintings. Besides 
these, there runs along the S. side 
a colonnade named the Loggien des 
Cornelius, so-called from its being 
decorated with a series of frescoes 
executed by Zimmermann from designs 
by the great Dusseldorf artist. These 
frescoes represent the growth of art 
in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands 
and France during the middle-ages. 
There are also lodged in the Pinako-

red brick, its t^vo incomplete towers 
being covered with cupolas of copper, 
which have been adopted as an emblem 
of the city. The interior, which con-

some handsome stained-glass windows, 
some interesting wood-carving and a 
number of old tombs. 

Leaving Frauen PL by Albert St.

thence, through Gruft St., oppo-ite, 
we turn to the left, and pass behind 
the General Post Office, formerly 

Tdrring Palace: the side looking 
toward R'^idenz St. is in Italian 
style, being a part of the original 
building erected in 1740; while the 
facade was added by Kienze in 183(). 
Close by is the Royal Mint; and 
opposite is Alter Hof, the oldest re- 
sidence of Bavarian monarchs, having 
been erected in 1253. A little further 
east is Hofhrduhaus; or, passing north- 
wards into Maximilian St., we turn

BAMBERG, the residence of the 
Bavarian heir- apparent, Prince Rup- 
recht, is an interesting old city situated 
on two arms of the Regnitz, a few miles 
from its junction with the Main. 

Approaching the city from the rail- 
way station, few buildings of interest 
are past till one has got beyond the first 
arm of the river. Crossing this by Lud- 
wig's Bridge, we soon find ourselves 
at Maximilian PI., a square embellished 
with a fountain bearing statues of 
various historical personages. 

Following the street called Gruner 
Markt, we come to St. Martin's Church, 
a 17th cent. Barocco edifice with an 
enormous dome. Surrounding it, there 
are several public buildings, of which 
the most noteworthy is the Royal 
Library, containing 300,000 vols, 
and upwards of 3,000 MSS. with the 
so-called Alcuin*s Bible &c. 

Proceeding to the other arm of the 
Regnitz, we notice a double bridge 
enclosiDg the Raihaus, The building, 
which is erected upon an artificial 
island, dates, in its present form, from 
the middle of the IS^h cent. 

About a furlong beyond the bridge 

"he Cathedral, one of the finest 
lanesque edifices in Germany, 
I four handsome towers. The 
tnal building was erected by the 
»eror Henry II., in A. D. 1004, 
having been almost completely 
royed by fire, it was rebuilt by 
op Otto in 1115. It contains 
umber of interesting tombs, in- 
' the sarcophagus of its founder. 

in the nave, and that of pope 
Clement II., in the crypt; the trea- 
sury, with several reliquaries, and 
St. Antony's Chapel are worth seeing. 
Near the cathedral are situated 
several other important buildings, 
such as the Episcopal Palace and 
the Old Royal Palace, the latter a 
gabled building with beautiful porch 
and extensive courtyard. Beyond 
it stands the New Palace whence 
Napoleon issued his declaration of 
war against Prussia in 1806. 

A little to the west is St James* 
Church, a Romanesque basilica ~ of 
the lltb century, with Gothic and 
Barocco additions. 

On a hill to the north rises St.HlebMPs 
Church* a similar building to St. James' 
bat of somewhat later date. Its towers, to- 
gether with the neiffhbouring Benedictine 
Abbey, are visible tor a long tiistance- 

The church contains nanoerous inter- 
esting objects, most of them transferred 
from the cathedral. In the adjoining 
cloisters is the Citf Pietare Gallery, with 
several paintings of the Old German, 
Italian, Spanish and other schools. 

To the south of the cathedral is 
situated the Chareh of Oar Lady, best 
reached from the Bathaus tbrouorh 
Kaalberg St. The building, originally 
14th cent. Gothic, has been greatly mo- 
dified at Tarious periods. 

Bamberg is a hilly place, and the 
walks in the vicinity are very pretty. 
Some of the most attractive are up Kaal- 
berg HtU and to Altesbarg Baiss and 
Theresian Haln; while more distant exr 
onrsions are to Bans & Tlersehsheiligen 
(see Lichtenfels route 88 A). 

ERIiANGEUr (POP.: 28,000. - HOT.: 
Sehwan; Blane Oloeke) was fonnded by 
Huguenot refugees after the edict of 
Nantes. The place has, for its size, a 
considerable industry; and its beers are 
among the most celebrated in Germany. 

There are but few edifices of impor- 
tance in the town. Two only call for 
special mention, namely, the University 
and the Palace. The UniTersityy which 
is renowned for its chairs of medicine 
and theology, dates from 1748, aad con- 
sists of an extensive group of buildings 
clustering around the Palace Garden. 

The Palaee contains a library of 
180,000 vols., together with a collection 
of 15 th and 16th century sketches by 
Dutch, Flemish and German masters.

NUREMBERG is an exceedingly 
interesting city, whose inhabitants are 
busily engaged in the manufacture of 
toys, fancy- articles, leather, iron- ware, 
machinery, beer &c. In point of siae, 
it is the second town in Bavaria; while, 
commercially, it is the most important 

Elace in South Germany and the chief 
op-market on the Continent. 
Moreover, it possesses, for the tourist, 
great attractions. Founded some time 
prior to the nti> century, and first 
mentioned as Nonremberc in an act 
of the year 1050, it was built, in the 
main, during the Gothic Sc Benaissanoe 
periods, its churches belonging mostly 
to the former, and its private bnildi 
combining both styles. Its most renowi 
adorners were the sculptors Adam Kri 
(t 1607) and Veit Stoss (f 1682), and 
brass - founder Peter Visoher (f IE 
who. together with the immortal paii 
Albert Dttrer (f 1628), gave to Nuremb 
its important position among the 
centres of Europe in the middle • a| 
With the decline in South Gerx 
trade after the discovery of the I 
route to India and in consequenoi 
the Thirty Years' War, Nurambar^

peii^j^iDiie as an impanitl cityjiiid became 
locorporated in Bavaria ia iSUti. 

Prom that time onwards its growth 
has been very rapid, the population 
having increased nearly tenfold. Never- 
theless» its old buildings have remamed 
almost intact and it is quite the qOaintest 
town in Germany; while, in order to 
preserve that unity of medieeval aspect 
for which it is so remarkable, the 
municipal surveyors insist upon all new 
erections being designed in keeping 
with the elder structures. 

Through the centre of the city flows 
the many-bridged Pegnitz; and round 
the older districts runs a well-preserved 
wall with several towers. The principal 
buildings are the following, namely: — 

Si. Lorenzhirche, at the further end 
of Konigs St from Frauen Tlior : it is 
the finest church in the town, being 
a beautiful Gothic building dating beck 
to the 13th cent The most striking 
points of the exterior are the western 
fa9ade and its porch with a splendid 
rose • window above it: the interior 
contains some magnificent stained- 
glass and interesting works of art of 
the 15th and 16th centuries including 
the so-called pyramid (designed and 
executed by Adam Krafft), some 
wood-carving by Veit Stoss and a 
candelabra by Peter Vischer. 

Close by the church is the Tug end

original design (Wurzelbauer, 1589).

Peter Vischer St (No. 23), is Vischer's 
old dwelling-house. In the immediate 
neighbourhood are the premises of the 
Industrie and KuUur-Verein, At 
3 Konigs St., near the bridge, is 
the Bayrische Gewerbe- Museum (in- 
dustrial museum). Crossing the bridge, 
we reach the Marienkirche, or Church 
of our Lady, a beautiful 14th cent, 
edifice, with a very rich interior and 
"teresting clockwork (1506). Atone 
rner of the church is a fountain 
led 'Ganseniannchen', designed by 
icher's pupil Labenwolf and repre- 
iting the figure of a man carrying 
> geese; while hard by, at 9 Hans 
'hsen Gasse, is the dwelling-house 
the cobbler- poet Hans Sachs. In 
It of the church is the 'Schoner 

Brunnen\ by master Heinrich (1396): 
it is a beautiful creation, with figures 
representing Charlemagne, Gottfried of 
Bouillon and Clod wig (Christian heroes); 
Judas Maccabdeus, Joshua & David (old 
testament), and Caesar, Alexander and 
Hector (profane) : a second tier of figures 
represents Moses and the prophets. 

Beyond the fountain rises the Rat' 
haus, a building in Italian Renaissance 
style erected at the opening of the 1 7th 
cent. It is an imposing edifice with a 
fine hall containing a panelled ceiling, 
frescoes from designs by Diirer, and 
stained-glass by Hirschvogel. 

Close by is Sebalduskirche, a Gothic 
building with remnants of earlier struc- 
tures of the Romanesque and Transition 
periods. The church is most beautifully

and delieately ornamented, the exterior 
of the choir being adorned with the 
finest of Adam Krafft', a tomb 
representing the crucifixion, burial and 
resurrection of Christ, and termed the 
*Schreyersche Grabmal*. ''The northern 
porch is called the" Brauiihur*' and is an 
exceedingly fine specimen of decorated 
Gothic. The interior of the building 
contains reliefs by Stoss, frescoes by 
Hans von Kulmbaeh, some painted glass 
by Hirschvogel, and Peter Vischcr's 
master-piece, the Sebaldus Tomb. 

Hard by is the Palace of Justice, 
with a fine 8tair*case and a sessions- 
room containing Feuerbach's picture 
of 'Justice*. 

Beyond the Sebalduskirche is St 
Morttzkapelle, a beautiful Gothic 
structure, adjoining which is the cele- 
brated Bratwurst - Glockleini whither, 
at the ringing of a bell outside the 
building, the artists flock and are 
silently served with sausages. 

At the corner of Burg St &Theresien 

St., is the Municipal Library^ con- 
taining 70,000 vols, and 2,000 MSS. 

To the north of Sebalduskii che 
lies Albrecht Durer PI., embellished 
with a statue of Durer from designs 
by Rauch. Durer*s house, containing 
interesting relics ot the great master^ 
is at 39 Albrecht Diirer St., a short 
distance westwards. 

At the end of this street isTiergartncr 
Thor, to the right of which is the Old 
Castle, standing on a hill and overlook- 
ing the whole town: it was founded 
in 1024 by the Emp. Conrad 11. and 
restored in 1854. Near it is the so- 
called Heidenthurm, with the choirs 
of two chapels superposed one upon 
the other: the upper one, called 
Kaiser Kapelle, contains a number of 
works by Adam Krafft, Hans Holbein 
the elder, Wolgemuth and others. 

Beyond Tiergartner Thor is the 
celebrated foundry of Professor Lenz.

BATISBON (Begensburg) is an an-

the confluence of the Begen. 

The town, which, like moat others in 
the district, dates back to Bomaia times, 
contains many ancient and bea,ntiful 
buildings. The principal are the fo k low- 
ing, namely:— 

The Cathedral — not far from the head 
of the stone-bridge — is a Qotbic ediBQe^ 
with an interior resembling thtit of Stras- 
burg Minster. The erection of the mriin 
building occupied over SSOyearfl (liJ75 —

splendid porch with a curious tliree'e] 1

fafade dates back to the I4th cent, 
the remainder of the building having 
been erected between 1660 and 1721. 
It contains a Reichssaal, in which, 
during the i6th and 17th cent, the 
German Reichstag held its sessions: 
the walls of the apartment are hung 
with fine gobelins; while the other 
rooms are also interesting. Still 
further W., between Arnulf PI. and 
Bismarck PI., stands the Theatre. 
In the latter square, near . Jacob's 
Thor, will be found the so • called 
SchoUenkirche, a i2th cent. Roman- 
esque basilica: it possesses a cele- 
brated porch embellished with the gro- 
tesque stone-carvings so characteristic 
of this style of architecture, but here, 
in a highly developed form. Hard 
by are the churches of iS^. Dominic 
and Holy Trinity, In the S. of the 
town, not far from the station, is the 
monastery of St Emmeram, one of 
the oldest in Germany and containing 
a large number of relics, carvings and 
tombs. Adjoining it is the palace of 
the Princes of Thum and Taxis. A

jHALLA. Am its name impliea, 

it is intended as the "Tempel Dentseher 
Ehren'*; although, traly, the title is a 
misnomer, since the Walhalla is rather 
Scandinavian than German. MoreoTer,the 
style of the buildinff, however handsome, 
is scarcely adaptea for the purpose for 
which it was designed: it is, namely, a 
most exact imitation of the Parthenon, 
with a symbolio representation of Her- 
mann's Schlaoht (or. Detmold route 10) 
by Sohwanthaler. The interior is even 
finer than the exterior, and contains a 
large number of statnes and busts of 
celebrated Germans, among them six 
prodii(*tion8 of Ranch's. 

KELHEIM (POP.t i,O0a — HOT.: 
Ehrenttaaller) is a favourite excursion 
spot with ancient walls and towers. The 
surrounding countrv is extremely pictur- 
esque. On the neighbouring Michaels- 
berg stands the Befreiungshalle. This is 
a handsome and remarkable strnctore 
commemorating the Battle ot Leipsic 
(see route 10). Begun under Ludwig I., 
it was opened on the ISth Oct 1868, the 
jubilee day of the great battle. This 
date has been taken as the typical 
number in many points of the bnilaing, 
such as the 18 Teutonic ▼irgins borne 
by the enormous buttresses that sur*

HOTEL: Bayeriioher Hof. 

STARNBERG is a well-built resort 
at the northern end of the lake of the 
same name, and is much frequented 
by tourists and others. It possesses 
a handsome bathing and swimming 
institute, whence a 15 minutes' walk 
through a beautiful avenue of lime- 
trees brings us to Prinz Karl's Palace, 
on an elevation affording, an incom- 
parable view of the lake with its sur- 
rounding mountains and mansions. 

One of the favourite excursions is to 

Schloss Ber^ on the eastern bank, 
where a Romanesque chapel has been 
built in memory of King Ludwig II. — 
drowned in the lake ou the l3t>> June 
18S6. Close to the chapel a memorial 
column marks the spot where the terrible 
tragedy occurred. 

Bence either through the park ^20 min.) 
or by boat to Leoni. Here, there is a 
cable-railway to Rottmannshohe with 
famous Sanatorium. Ten minutes distant 
from the terminus stands a Bismarck 
Tower commanding a fine panorama. 
Next comes Aaimerlandy the seat of 
Count V. Pocoi 

Beyond it the footwajr through the 
woods that skirt the lake is very agree-

Indeed, it is a nice, romantic retreat 
at any period of the year, both the 
faculty and the public agreeing upon 
the admirable and healthy situation

tunities for walks on good and hilly 

The greatest attraction for the tourist 
is, of course, the Zngspitze, the higbest 
summit in the German Alps. It hns a 
lieight of 0711 feet. A guide shouM be 
taken (17 mks.), as the way is a diiilcult 
one, especiftlly for persons liable to 
giddiness. The delightful and erand 
panorama that presents itself well re- 
pays the trouble caused by the two

green valley, with its luscious meadows 
and fertile fields, lies at an elevation 
of 2,298 feet, and is surrounded by 
fine, wooded heights beyond which 
tower up the snowcapt tops of the 
Bavarian Alps. Noticeable among these

spitze to the left, and the beautiful 
Alpspitze tc5 the right, adjoining which 
appear the peaks of the Hollenlhal

the precipitous Zugspitze, 

The Alpine climate is exceedingly 
beneficial, especially in cases of chronic 
catarrh, neurasthenia, heart - disease 
and the early stages of consumption. 
Garmisch is particularly recommended 
to persons who have undergone 
treatment at such spas as Kissingen, 
Carlsbad, Ems, Wiesbaden &c.

BIESSEH8EE, a mountain-resort whose 
hotel, Biessersee (open the whole year), 
stands in a fine o^en spot with a delight'

the hotel is excellent^ and there is ample 
opportunity for boatmg and fishing.

place still famous for its violinn, 
zithers and other stringed instruments, 
the manufacture of which forms the 
staple industry of the little town. 

It lies in the elevated valley of the 
Isar and at the foot of the stupendous 

Karwendel and the rugged Wettersteln. 
This fine situation, coupled with a mild 
ozoniferous and dustless atmosphere, 
has rendered it also a very favourite 
resort, not only of tourists but also 
of health • seekers. The place is 
especially suitable for persons suffer- 
ing from emphysema, bronchial catarrh, 
neurasthenia and general debility. It 
is also very suitable for tuberculosis 
in early but not in advanced stages, 
as well as for heart troubles not 
developed to organic disease. 

If ittenwald lies on a broad turnpike- 
road running north and south along the 
left bank of the Isar. Tbe motor-cars

was founded in 1830 but, having been 
destroyed by fire in 1744. was rebuilt 
in Bococo style of whioh it forms a

and is an excellent mountain resort. 
Like its neighbour QraswAng, it possesses 
high-pressure water supply and more- 
over has omnibuses running twice daily

lor whom it was erected: the interior 
displayd a magnificence of ornament 
and a wealth of colour and gold which 
render it too ornate for the taste of 
many beholderii.

TOLZ is a wealthy and important 
market town charmingly situated on the 
right bank of the Iser. The buildings, 
quaint and curiously painted, cluster 
close together, at the foot of a hill, 
those in the broad and steep Markt St. 
being particularly interesting. A fine 
bridge spans the Iser and gives access 
to the spa, properly called 

Bad Krankenheil, a resort of great 
repute on account of its fine situation, 
salubrious climate and health-giving 

The place has an altitude of 2,201 

feet, and the broad valley in which 

it lies is encircled with fine mountain 

peaks, those in the distance rising 

to a height of 7,000 ft.; while woods 

great beauty and extent surround 

group of hotels and villas which 

pose the resort. 

The climate is bracing in character, 
the mean temperature during the season 
from Muy 1 5th— Oct. ist being 16^0. 

Fiye springs are in use. They con- 
tain iodides, chlorides and sulphides of 
sodium &c. and are specially famous for 
the first-named salts, the spa, indeed, 
owing them its name of Jodhad Tolz. 

The waters are employed medicin- 
ally and for bathing, mother-lye being 
sometimes added. 

Scrofula, affections of the skin and 
glands, catarrh of all kinds, female 
complaints &e. are the principal dis- 
eases treated. 

The number of visitors is very 
great, Krankenheil holding, in this 
respect, the third position among the 
spas of Bavaria. 

Among other pastimes, it may be 
mentioned that concerts are frequent- 
ly given, and that lawn-tennis and 
good fishing are to be had.

TEGERNSEE, once a famous 
Benedictine monastery, is now a well- 
known climatic resort bituated at a 
great elevation among the Alps of 
Upper Bavaria, and on the borders 
of the lake which bears its, name. 
This beautiful sheet of water, with 
a length of 5.7 km. and a breadth of 
2 km., is fed by numerous small becks 
and has its effluence at MangfalL 
Enclosed to the north, the east and 
the west by green meadows and 
wooded heights and to the south by 
mountains of considerable elevation, 
it unites a soft rural beauty with the 
grandeur of an alpine landscape, and is 
justly considered to be one of the love- 
liest spots in the Bavarian Highlands 
and one that will well bear comparison 
with the most celebrated lakes of 
Switzerland. Anyone who, having left 
the woods on the height above Gmund. 
sees the lake for the first time spread 
out before him in all its beauty, will 
reaJily admit the justness of this claim. 

Owing to its charming location, 
Tegernsee has become a much fre- 
quented health-resort, and counts 
among its visitors persons of the 
highest rank. The old monastery is 
now the residence of H. R. H. Duke 
CarlTheodor the famous philanthropist 
and oculist. A few years since, the 
German Empress stayed here for a 
long time with her children and 
repeatedly expressed herself in the 
warmest terms of the resort and its 
surroundings. In the year 1905 the 
Oerman Crown Prince and his consort 
spent three weeks here. Her highness 

the Duchess Marie of Saie-Coburg- 
Gotha resides here every summer at 
her castle named Seng er^ch loss where 
she is visited by her Russian , Eng f ish and 
Roumanian relatives. Morqovcr.Tegern* 
see is the seat of numerous members 
of German and foreign aristocracy. 

The place is admirably managed, and 
great care and attention are paid to its 
sanitation. On the borders of the lake 
there are excellent ist and Liini da^^s 
hotels, beautiful cafes and conditorcis 
with a large selection of newspapers; 
these and comfortable private lojgings 
enhance the agreeableness of Che resort. 

Tegernsee possesses no peculiar 
curative remedies; but its two admir- 
ably appointed bathing establishments 
offer ample opportunity, not only for 
lake-bathing, but also for hydropathic 
treatment. In the baths, use is made 
of pine-needles, mother- lye, sodium 
chloride, sulphur & mud. At Schwaig* 
hof, 15 min. distant, there is a special 
sulphur bath for chronic diseases of 
the skin and joints. 

Owing to its mild mountain- climate, 
its pure, bracing atmosphere^ its de- 
lightful woods and its refre&hmg lake, 
Tegernsee is a resort of the first 
rank, which is particularly suitabk^ for 
convalescents and for po^t-trealment 
after visiting Carlsbad, Kissing en &c. 
Tegernsee is, on account of its 
'*terrains", one of the leading resorts 
of the Bavarian Alps for all kinds of 
winter sports and games. Hotels and 
private apartments are well-arranged 
for summer and winter season. Direct

Bay rlscher Hof. -r- This is an ancient town, 
romantically situated on a long tongue 
of land at the confluence ot the Inn and 
the Ilz with the Danube and surrounded 
with fine heights. Its most important 
buildings are the following, namely:— 

The Cathedral, the date of whose 
foundation is unknown: but, in the 
15<h oent., it was rebuilt in Gothic style. 
This building was destroyed by fire in 
the 17th cent and replaced by a Baroooo 
edifice, which is one of the finest spe- 
cimens of its kind, and contains several 
beautiful chapels and an excellent organ. 
On the square in front of it, there is a 
statue of Maximilian Joseph I A short 
distance from here is the Church of 8t. 
Paal; while at Rindermarkt is Johannes 
Splttelkiichey containing^ a quantity of 
wood-carving and a number of tomhs. 
Other interesting churches are that of 
the Holy Ghost, in Heiligegeist Gasse, 
and that of St. Salvatore, near the 
'Tunnel* (15ii^ cent.). The Batfaaus at the 
FiPchmarkt has been recently restored. 

The city is connected with Innstadt 
bv Ludwig*s Br oke: another bridge — 
Maximilian Briioke — leads a<-ros8 the 
Danube to Anger; while a third join^ 
it with Nlederhaas and SalTatorkirehe.

REICHENHALL, with its saline 
springs, is doubtless the largest 
climatic health - resort in Germany ; 
the annual number of patients being 
about 11,000, while a similar number 
of visitors who do not take the 
waters are found here every year. 
The spa lies on the perfectly level 
floor of a valley among the Alps of 
Southern Bavaria, and at an elevation 
of over 1,500 feet. Dolomite moun- 
tains, rising to a height of between 
6,000 and 7,000 feet, enclose the 
plain, and render the climate of the 
spa mild but invigorating. 

The spa, which has a mean tempera- 
ture of 8'42*^C., is especially adapted for 
affections of the heart, throat and chest ; 
but patients of all kinds find relief here. 

The treatment which is of an ex- 
ceedmgly varied character, falls under 
.hrfte heads, namely: — Terrainkur; 

Bathing, Inhalation and Pneumatic 
Chambers; and Trinkkur. 

Hofknr Anstalt ^Dianabad' is an old 
and very extensive concern, situated in 
the centre of the spa and snrronnded 
by large and beautifal gronnds; it pos- 
sesses powerful machinery and is fitted 
with the latest sppliances, including 
pneumatic cabinets, inhalation room and 
bathing apparatus. 

Above the town rises the old Castle 
of Gmtteiistelii, while 1 he neighbouring 
heights afford opportunities for making 
charming excursions.

Reichenhall and Salzburg, and an 
interesting mountain-railway, with 12

a royal oh&teau and 'Stiftskircho* with 
some 12tb cenr. carving. From the royal 
villa, a fine prospect is obtained. The 
district is nob in fine srenery; and the 
place is much frequented as a summer 
and health resort. One of the most 
beautiful excursions is to the Loekstela 
(V2 br.), whence one obtains a splendid 
view of the Berohtesgad en Valley. But the 
great;, attraction of the neighbourhood 
is KONIGSEIS, a lake about 4 iriles in 
length and 1 mile iu breadth : it is con- 
sidered the loveliest lake in Qermany 
or Austria, and is celebrated for the 
beautiful deep-srreen rolour of its water. 


urhaus Achselmannstein 





AQstriA was originally a small dake- 
./A dom which ^rew out of that of 
Bavaria, at the close of the 12^1^ cent. 
Angmented hy the addition of Styria, 
it came under the rule of the House of 
Hapsburg, who raised it to the status 
of a kingdom towards the close of the 
14th cent. This dynastjr, under whose 
sceptre it has ever since remahied, 
won for the country, by con<4ueBt and 
marriage, a leading position among the 
European powers, Indeed, during the 
period when its monarchs were also 
Emperors of Germany, it was, perhaps, 
the mightiest state in Europe. ButL alter 
the reformation, a decline gradually set 
in, and. with the domination of Napoleon 
in 1H05, the existence of the old German 
Empire came to an end. In the follow- 
ing year, Franz XL adopted the title of 
Emperor of Austria (cf. Introduction to 
Germany). Till 18ti6, no change of im- 
portance took place; but then, during 
the great conflict with Prussia, it lost 
its Italian provinces of Lombardy and 
lice, a loss which, territorially, has 
e been compensated - for by the 
aisition of Bosnia and Heraegovina. 
these states, like most of the others 
sli go to make up the Empire, are 
r under the dominion of the reigning 
Deror and are quite independent in 
internal questions,

A\ imperial matters, each individual 
» having a separate Laadtag for 

the conduct of home affairs. 'These 
states (some of which are styled king- 
doms, some of them duchies) are al- 
most as numerous a« the various races 
which form the population. The princi- 
pal of them are:— Upper and Lower 
Austria, Styria and Tyrol (all of them 
German), Bohemia lTdchechi8ch\Galicia, 
Moravia, Bosnia, Dalmatia and Hungary. 
The Jaat of these is by far the largest 
in point of extent and popalation, 
though, politically and commercially, 
the Kingdom of Austria is still the 
most important member of this many- 
tongued emnire. 

It should be o' early remembered 
that, in race, language and social 
interests, Hungary is quite distinct from 
Austria; and, German being by no 
means commonly known, a slight know- 
ledge of Magyar on the part of the 
traveller is not undesirable^

system is employed: (see Tables of

Two churches, two chapels, and severaK 
collections are also to be seen here. 

The Kreuzherrenkirche is an imi- 
tation of St Peter's at Rome. Near 
it is a monument to Charles IV. The 
yearly exhibition of pictures takes place 
in the new Rudolphinum, where are 
also to be found an Art Gallery, 
and the Conservatory of Music. The 
Cathedral of St Vitus was begun 
under Charles IV. in 1344. It has a large 
Gothic choir, and contains a consider- 
ablcnumberofmonuments;'but both the 
building and its contents suffered con- 
siderably during the siege of 1757. The 
most important points to observe in the 
interior are the large Ronig's Denkmal 
(King's Memorial) in the nave and a 
beautiful Renaissance railing by 
Schmidthamm/sr; furthermore, Wen- 
ceslas Chapel, decorated with Bohemian 
jewels, the Martin Chapel, with an altar 
of Carrara marble, and a picture of 
the half-mythical Nepomuk above it

ornamented with carvings and frescoes.

Old Church, Loretto Chapel, Czernin 
Palace and the Archbishop*s Palace. 

Close to the station are Jose/ PI., 
from which most of the principal streets 
radiate. Celetnd ulice, Karlova ulice, 
Velki a Male ndmesti. At the be- 
ginning of Celetna ulice stands the 
Pulverthurm (PraSna brana) in late 
Gothic style {I5th cent.). To the N. 
of this rises the magnificent Reprd- 
sentaiiotts Stadihaus. 

Prague contains several fine bridges, 
including the new Moldau bridge 

(Kaiser Franzens Brucke) opened 
on June I4th 1901. Karl's Brucke, 
with sixteen arches, was partly, de- 
stroyed in 1890, but afterwards re- 
stored. On this bridge are to be seen 
30 statues of saints, partly from the 
lO^hcent, partly of later date. Between 
it and Kaiser Franzens Briicke is the 
Franzen*s Monument, a Gothic fountain 
with statue of Franz I, in the middle. 
On Bethlehem* s PL the dwelling of 
Huss (now Nos. 5 & 6) formerly stood. 

The largest open spot in Prague 
is Karfs PI. with a monument to the 
Tschechian poet, Viieslaw Halek, In 
Wyschrader St., the Emaus Cloister 
and the Marienkirche in Gothfc style,

coes representing scenes from the 
so-called Biblia Pauperum. 

A short distance north-east of 
Hradcany Square and adjoining the 
Royal Gardens, there is a spacious 
park called Krdlovskd Obora, Its 
Belvedere, erected in 1536 and com- 
manding extensive views of the city

A hundred and fifty years ago the 
population of Vienna numbered about 
an eighth of a million only, and now, 
within its 20 districts, counts 1,800,000, 
thus ranking third among the cities 
of the Continent. Thanks to the 
extraordinary development in the last 
forty years, the number of foreigners 
visiting Vienna (at present more than 
half a million annually) is increasing 
year by year. The embellishment of 
Vienna has been carried on energeti- 
cally during the last twenty years 
and, combined with the improvement 
in the means of communication, 
renders Vienna one of the first cities 
of Europe. Owing to the magnificent 
position of the Kaiserstadt on the 
Danube and its charming surroundings. 


as well as many other attractions, 
Vienna like every other great city, 
continually draws a large influx of 
visitors. In spite of the enormous 
development, the principal character- 
istic (the chief trait of character) is 
good nature and joviality. The whole 
life in Vienna bears the stamp of 
cordiality, which prevails in all social 
circks. The constant good humour 
and ever ready wit of the inhabitants 
enjoy a great reputation over the 

whole globe. In no other great city 
will the stranger feel at home in' so 
short a time as in Vienna; and no- 
where is access to the best society 
so readily to be found as in Vtenna. 
The people of Vienna are enthusiastic 
lovers of music and dancing. The 
musical character of Vienna, the town 
of songs, is acknowledged throi^gh- 
out the world. It would be difficult 
to convey an idea by means of words 
of the architectural beauties of Vienna*

Indeed, it is rare to find in any great 
city so many fine structures contained 
in so relatively small a spa^e as here. 
In the inner city rises the St.Stephan*s 
Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic 
architecture. The steeple of St.

Parliament embellished with beautiful 
Greek sculptures, the City Hall, the 
University, the splendid Burg Theater 
and the Votivkirche, — a church built in 
Gothic style and occupying a wonder- 
ful site. Of the large parks the most 
remarkable and the best known is 
called the Prater with the Wurstel- 
prater (a kind of permanent fair); 
here many a glimmer of golden 
humour and hearty good nature 8till 
flits over the merry outbreaks of the 
people's soul — that traditional good 
nature which is fast vanishing in the 
worldly bustle of modern metropolises. 
A great many of the parks are well 
wooded and suggestive of the country, 
and the surrounding districts are 
magniiiceat indeed. The Royal Palace 
of Schonbrunn, with its charming, 
and extensive parks, contains a world- 
renowned Palm Garden and well- 
stocked Zoological Gardens. 

The environs of Vienna are celebrated 
for their beauty. No other European 
capital can be compared with that of 
Austria in the number and variety of 
ezcartiions to be found in its immediate 
vicinity. Mountain and forest, river 
and plain, the cultivated field and the 
wildly luxuriant hillside, the awe- 
inspiring magnificence of nature and 
the sweet and peaceful beauty that tells 
of patient, lonj; • continued human toil, 
— all lie at the gates of the Royal City 
on the Danube. It would be difficult, 
indeed, to find another spot where, 
within 80 small a circuit, such a rich 
variety of the loveliest and most im- 
pressive scenes delight the eye and 
fill the heart of the beholder suscept- 
.ble to the influences of nature in her 

sublimpr aspects. In summer-time^ the 
air everywiiere rings with the joyous 
voices of gay buman beings « seeking 
the many wooded declivitieB around 
Vienna to satis ty the love of nature 
innate in every Viennese. 

On Sundays, thousands are carried 
by the cos- wheel railway to the summit 
of the Kahlenberg, a popular resort of 
the Viennese. The magnificent view 
of Vienna obtained from this place is 
especially impressive when the lights 
of evening flash up in the town. A 
walk of only half an hour along shady 
woodland paths leads from Kahlenherg 
to Leopoldsberg with its glorious view 
of the Danube and the plain of the 
wide Marchteld. 

On the line of the Southern Bailway 
there is the ■ thousand-year-old city of 
Moedling — the entrance to the pictur- 
esque valley called the Hinterbruehl. 
Moedling lies in a wooded and sheltered 
region and is much in favour as a 
summer and' health resort owing to 
its wealth of historical reminiscences 
and modern spirit of enterprise, as well 
as to the picturesque beauty of its sur- 
roundings. ' 

From Moedling the tramway — the 
oldest electric road in Central-Europe 
— leads through a highly romantic 
ravine to the Bruehl, where stand 
Liechtenstein Castle, the dairy and 
picturesque ruins. Farther and farther 
the way stretches on between splendid 
villas to the Hinterbruehl, and thence 
into countless charming dales, every-
